UCSF

Administration

The Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry is one of three departments in the UCSF School of Pharmacy and is under the administrative oversight of the department chair, who reports to the School’s dean. The dean reports directly to the UCSF chancellor, who reports to the UC president, who is accountable to the Regents of the University of California.

The School of Pharmacy—together with the Schools of Medicine, Nursing, and Dentistry, the Graduate Division, and the UCSF Medical Center—form UCSF, which is one of 10 campuses in the University of California (UC) system.

UCSF is intensely collaborative. As a result, department faculty members work with colleagues in research and education programs across UCSF.
