New Vice Chancellor of Health Affairs at UCI

University of California-Irvine named Howard Federoff its new vice chancellor for health affairs and dean of the School of Medicine, effective July 1.

He replaces interim dean Roger Steinert, a professor of ophthalmology and director of the Gavin Herbert Eye Institute who replaced the retiring Ralph Clayman last July.

The vice chancellor for health affairs is a new position that includes oversight of UC Irvine’s clinical, medical education and research work. Federoff’s duties here include working with UCI Chancellor Howard Gillman on finding a new chief executive for the UC Irvine Medical Center.

Current chief Terry Belmont has said he plans to retire June 30.

Federoff comes from Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., where he held a similar position. There, he was lead author of a 2014 study involving blood tests for Alzheimer’s disease.
