      Dr. Gretchen Kiser is the Director of the Research Development Office (RDO) at the University of California San Francisco. Dr. Kiser has diverse molecular biology and biochemistry experience, including over 20 years as a lab researcher with six years in the biotechnology industry. She combines her hands-on bench know-how, research and faculty development experience, college-level teaching involvement, and technical writing skills, with expertise as a Black Belt in Lean Six Sigma, a statistical measurement-based business management strategy. Dr. Kiser leverages this broad background to support institutional research goals and strategic research initiatives, leading a professional team that facilitates development of complex multi-disciplinary research proposals, management of intramural and limited extramural funding responses, and development of collaborative cross-functional science teams.

      Dr. Kiser received her B.Sc. in Biology at UCLA and her Ph.D. in Molecular and Cellular Biology (Genetics minor), studying cell cycle regulation in the yeast genetics lab of Dr. Ted Weinert at the University of Arizona. She then went on to a post-doctoral fellowship at the Mayo Clinic in the protein structure/function lab of Dr. John Riordan.
