Bishop Is Named New Chair of NCAB

WASHINGTON--President Clinton has appointed J. Michael Bishop, MD, as chair of the 18-member National Cancer Advisory Board (NCAB), which advises the National Cancer Institute director. He replaces Barbara K. Rimer, DrPH, of Duke University, who resigned last fall to head the NCI’s new Division of Cancer Control and Population Science.

Dr. Bishop, an NCAB member since 1994, is professor of microbiology and immunology at the University of California, San Francisco, and was recently named as the new UCSF chancellor. He shared the 1989 Nobel Prize in Physiology and Medicine for his work on tumor viruses and oncogenes.
