Date:10/24/2008

Chancellor J. Michael Bishop, MD, who has led the University of California, San Francisco for the past 10 years, today announced plans to step down from his post, effective June 30, 2009.

(Vocus) October, 24, 2008 -- Chancellor J. Michael Bishop, MD, who has led the University of California, San Francisco for the past 10 years, today announced plans to step down from his post, effective June 30, 2009.

Bishop, 72, steered UCSF through one of its most expansive periods of growth and achievement, which included development from the ground up of a second major campus, establishment of innovative research programs, and record philanthropic support.

He will continue to serve on the UCSF faculty as a professor in the Department of Microbiology and Immunology and as director of the G. W. Hooper Foundation, a biomedical research unit at UCSF.

"Mike Bishop has been a giant in the University of California system - scientist, author, Nobel Prize winner, chancellor," said UC President Mark G. Yudof. "In his 40 years of service to UCSF, the last 10 as chancellor, he has provided a model for distinguished scholarly inquiry, thoughtful academic leadership and deep commitment to the public good.

"UCSF today is recognized as one of the leading academic medical centers in the world. Under Mike's leadership UCSF has enhanced its prestige and its contribution to the health of San Francisco, California and the world. UCSF also has further enhanced its position on the cutting edge of biomedical research and patient care through the innovative development of its Mission Bay campus and the new clinical facilities now planned there. Mike and his team deserve tremendous credit for their vision and execution in this regard.

"In the near future we will begin a national and international search for Mike's replacement. But for today, I thank Mike
