UC Davis med school dean steps down amid controversy
- Dr. Claire Pomeroy, dean of the UC Davis School of Medicine, announced Monday she will be stepping down, leaving behind a legacy marked not only by tremendous fiscal growth and innovation, but by criticism from federal regulators and her own administration over medical and ethical controversy that occurred on her watch.
- Pomeroy's neurological surgery department was the focus of multiple investigations during the last 18 months after Dr. J. Paul Muizelaar and Dr. Rudolph J. Schrot (who have since been banned by the university from research involving human subjects) were accused of experimenting on dying brain cancer patients without proper approval from university officials or federal regulators.
- Pomeroy said Monday that she made the decision to leave and plans on moving to the "national stage," adding that she's talking to a "small number of organizations" about the next step in her career.
