The last remaining finalist for chancellor at the University of Nebraska Medical Center will be on the Omaha campus Monday and participate in a public forum the next day.
Dr. Robert Califf, vice chancellor for clinical research at Duke University Medical Center, will speak at 4 p.m. July 9, University of Nebraska officials said. The presentation will be in Room 1002 at the Durham Research Center.
Califf also is the director of the Duke Translational Medicine Institute, which focuses on translating discoveries in the laboratory to improved health outcomes. Before that, he was the founding director of the Duke Clinical Research Institute, an academic research organization.
The other two remaining finalists already have visited the UNMC campus and given their presentations. Dr. Fred Meyers, executive associate dean of the School of Medicine at the University of California, Davis, was in Omaha in early June. Dr. Daniel Wilson, vice president for health affairs and dean of medicine at the University of Florida Health Science Center in Jacksonville, visited later in the month.
A fourth finalist, Dr. Stephen Klasko, dean of the College of Medicine and CEO of the Health Sciences Center at the University of South Florida in Tampa, withdrew from consideration last month. He was appointed as president of Thomas Jefferson University in Philadelphia and president and chief executive officer of the Thomas Jefferson University Hospital system. He will start there in September.
