ALL STUDENTS AT UCSD
Please join me on September 15 at a reception to honor Vice Chancellor Edward Holmes. The reception will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. at the Leichtag Lobby and Lawn at the School of Medicine.
Ed has been Vice Chancellor for Health Sciences and Dean of the School of Medicine since 2000. His contributions to UC San Diego are vast and invaluable. He oversaw the launch of the Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, the opening of the Moores UCSD Cancer Center and the expansion of the Shiley Eye Center. He led UCSD Medical Centerís long-range planning effort by recruiting top-notch department chairs and administrators, and he has built cross-campus and multi-institutional partnerships, as well as international collaborations.
Ed is departing UC San Diego to join the Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR) in Singapore, where heíll serve as the Executive Deputy Chairman for Clinical and Translational Sciences at the Biomedical Research Council of Singapore and Lien Ying Chow Professor of Medicine at the National University of Singapore. Ed will continue to be an effective partner in international outreach and will help build bridges between Asia and UC San Diego.
We are expecting a large turnout of Edís colleagues and friends at the reception, so I ask that if you plan to attend, please RSVP online at http://www-er.ucsd.edu/event/holmes. If you have any questions, you may call (858) 534-6386.
