BREAKING NEWS: New Name for UCSD Bioengineering

Department of Bioengineering at UC San Diego has received a transformational philanthropic gift of $25M to invest in new instructional infrastructure to benefit undergraduate students and in faculty and graduate student recruitment and research. These funds will create an endowment that will ensure long-term investments in these areas and give us a new name:
The Shu Chien-Gene Lay Department of Bioengineering
These funds are being gifted by Gene Lay, the founder and CEO of BioLegend (now a subsidiary for Perkin-Elmer), in honor of Dr. Shu Chien to memorialize their long-term relationship and commitment to student education and research.

Congratulations, Dr. Nizet!

Victor Nizet, MD, Distinguished Professor of Pediatrics at University of California San Diego School of Medicine and Pharmacy at Skaggs School of Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Sciences, has been elected to the National Academy of Medicine.
