Dr. Catriona Jamieson is one of three UC San Diego faculty and staff members to receive an Excellence in Stewardship Award this year.

In his announcement to the campus community on April 21, Chancellor Pradeep K. Khosla said, “The UC San Diego community defines exemplary stewardship as taking every measure to ensure that our supporters – donors, volunteers, corporate partners and foundations – understand the full impact and importance of their involvement with UC San Diego.

“Excellent stewardship goes beyond saying ‘thank you’ and instills pride and further engagement by fully communicating to supporters all that their engagement has made possible.”

Catriona Jamieson, MD, PhD, is Associate Professor of Medicine, Chief of the Division of Regenerative Medicine, Deputy Director of the Sanford Stem Cell Clinical Center, Co-Leader of the Hematologic Malignancies Program and Director of the Moores Cancer Center Stem Cell Research Program.

She and the other honorees will be recognized at the annual UC San Diego Foundation Dinner on June 2, 2016. The award is presented by the Trustees of the UC San Diego Foundation Board.
