University of California Davis has named Dr. Allison Brashear, known for her research on neurological disorders, as the new dean of its school of medicine, filling a vacancy that has been open for two years.

In early 2017, the previous dean, Dr. Julie Freischlag, was named CEO of Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

The new dean hails from Wake Forest. Brashear will join UC Davis after more than 13 years at the Wake Forest School of Medicine where she was a professor and chair of neurology.
