New Urology chair

Christopher P. Evans, a member of the UC Davis faculty since 1997, is the new chair of the Department of Urology. He succeeds Ralph W. deVere White, who served as chair for 21 years.

The Department of Urology is known for its active participation in national clinical trials and strong research emphasis, especially in the areas of prostate and bladder cancer. It provides comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for adult and pediatric urologic conditions and is a regional leader in complex urologic surgeries, including nerve-sparing and robotic radical prostatectomy, urinary reconstruction for adults and children, laparoscopic renal surgeries and minimally invasive treatments for benign prostatic hyperplasia.

Evans maintains an active research laboratory focusing on prostate cancer, funded by the National Institutes of Health, U.S. Department of Defense and American Cancer Society. He is director of Urology Research Laboratories at UC Davis, co-director of the UC Davis Genitourinary Oncology Clinical Trials Group and a member of the UC Davis Cancer Center.

DeVere White continues as assistant dean for cancer programs at UC Davis School of Medicine and Medical Center and UC Davis Cancer Center director.
