San Francisco Business Times

Kaiser Permanente has named Karen Emmons, associate dean for research at the Harvard University School of Public Health, to head its Kaiser Foundation Research Institute, effective Sept. 13. The move came after a nationwide search, Kaiser said late last week. All told, Kaiser has 140 researchers in eight regional research centers, including Oakland’s Northern California Division of Research, headed by Dr. Tracy Lieu. As of mid-2012, it had 62 researchers on staff, or roughly 1 in 3 of Kaiser’s national total.
