UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty member Tejal Desai, PhD, has been newly elected to the National Academy of Medicine (NAM), formerly known as the Institute of Medicine (IOM).

James Fraser, PhD

Professor

I am a biophysicist. My research is focused on discovering the macromolecular structure and dynamics of proteins—defining conformational states essential for function and understanding transitions between these states.

C. Anthony Hunt, PhD

Professor

I am a theoretical systems pharmacologist who develops advanced simulation methods to improve multiscale mechanistic explanations of complex phenomena in the presence and absence of therapeutic interventions.

Zev Gartner, PhD

Professor

My laboratory is working to understand how cells self-organize into tissues, how the structure of tissues help regulate cell behaviors, and how tissue structure breaks down in diseases like cancer. By understanding these processes we hope to reveal general principles contributing to cancer...
