UCSF EMERITI FACULTY ASSOCIATION

APRIL 2012

 

         I am pleased to inform CUCEA that the UCSF Emeriti Faculty Association is back in business.  We now have 67 paid up members and we have had two great general programs with outstanding speakers and good attendance:

 

Š      On January 13, 2012, Wade Smith, M.D., PhD. spoke to us on “The Pathogenesis and Treatment of Stroke” .  Dr. Smith is the Director of the UCSF Neurovascular Service and an internationally-known  authority on the causes and treatment of stroke.

 

Š      On March 20, 2012. UCSF’s Stanley B. Prusiner, M.D.  spoke to us on “The Widening Spectrum of Prion Diseases”.  Dr. Prusiner received the Nobel Prize in 1997 and the National Medal of Science from President Obama in 2010.  What a speaker and what an honor!
