UCSF Chancellor J. Michael Bishop Announces Plan To Step Down
Date:10/24/2008

for his extraordinary service to the University of California."

In a message to the UCSF campus today, Bishop said: "I will leave office with lasting gratitude to the many people with whom I have worked as chancellor -- for their talents, devotion to UCSF and its vital missions, and above all else, for their collegial spirit, which has been the principal pleasure for me in the chancellorship and which has so typified UCSF during my 41 years at this splendid institution. It has been both a privilege and a challenge to have served as your chancellor during one of the more eventful and productive decades in the history of UCSF. The many achievements of UCSF during that decade represent the combined efforts of the entire campus community: I can take little of the credit."

Bishop joined the UCSF faculty in 1968 and in 1981 assumed the additional post of Hooper director. He was named UCSF chancellor in February 1998. Since 2004, he also has held the Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Distinguished Professorship. While serving as chancellor, Bishop continued to teach medical students and run his distinguished research lab.

Bishop and his colleague Harold Varmus, MD, shared the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1989 for cancer research. Bishop and Glenn Seaborg, who served as chancellor at UC Berkeley from 1958-61, are the only two Nobel laureates to have served as chancellors in the 10-campus UC system.

As chancellor of UCSF, Bishop has guided one of the premier institutions of higher education in the world, one that includes leading professional schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy, a top-ranked biomedical research graduate division, two of the nation's leading hospitals -- UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Children's Hospital -- and affiliated programs at San Francisco General Hospital Medical Center and the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center.

Significant achievements under Bishop'
