Sacramento Bee

Dr. Claire Pomeroy, who announced last November that she would step down as dean of the UC Davis School of Medicine, will become president of the New York-based Albert and Mary Lasker Foundation, a nonprofit dedicated to medical research.

Officials of the nearly 70-year-old foundation said Pomeroy will join it this spring.

In November, Pomeroy announced that she would resign from her UCD post. The announcement came amid a federal investigation of neurosurgeons at the UC Davis Medical Center.
