Year in Review: Change at the top for UC Davis Health System
Sacramento Business Journal

What: University of California Davis chose a new medical school dean and vice chancellor for human health services in September to replace Dr. Claire Pomeroy. She left the university in June to work for a New York nonprofit that supports medical research, but her departure was clouded by a scandal involving two UC Davis neurosurgeons banned from human research after they experimented on dying brain cancer patients without university permission. Who: Dr. Julie Freischlag, a professor and surgeon-in-chief at Johns Hopkins University, will replace Pomeroy on Feb. 10, 2014.
