UC Davis Genome Center director named

Richard Michelmore, a professor of genetics at UC Davis and an internationally known genomics expert, has been selected as founding director of the UC Davis Genome Center.

"With the broad range of genomics and bioinformatics research on our campus, from food crops to laboratory animals, UC Davis is already making unique contributions in this area," said Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Virginia Hinshaw.

"Dr. Michelmore has the leadership and expertise to enable UC Davis to expand these efforts and realize new achievements in this critical multidisciplinary effort. I'm surely excited about working with him on this endeavor."

Michelmore will oversee the hiring of 15 new faculty members in genomics and bioinformatics, as well as the final stages of constructing and equipping the Genome Center. The center will be located in the $95 million Genome and Biomedical Sciences Facility, located north of Tupper Hall in the health sciences district. The building is scheduled to open in summer 2004.
