    Collapse Overview
    Dr. Hook-Barnard is Director of Research Strategy and Associate Director, Precision Medicine. She serves as director of the UCSF Precision Medicine Platform Committee, which aims to conceptualize and build precision medicine as a central overarching institutional vision at UCSF. She helped launch and continues to partner with the California Initiative for Advancing Precision Medicine (CIAPM) to help advance the state-wide initiative.

    In the UCSF Office of Science Policy and Strategy and the School of Medicine Dean’s Office, she works with scientific experts and leaders from across academia, industry, and government sectors to identify and frame scientific opportunities, technical feasibility, and organizational challenges. She develops and supports efforts to secure major research and infrastructure funding, supports research and graduate programs (such as SOM Bridge Funding, and the Integrated Funding Model (IFM)), and provides advice, consultation, and analysis on scientific initiatives.

    Dr. Hook-Barnard’s primary interests are in areas of emerging science, technology, and medicine, spanning fundamental discovery to translational application, clinical practice, and population health research, including issues of policy, regulation, ethical and societal concerns, and workforce. From 2008- 2015, she worked as a senior program officer with the National Academy of Sciences (NAS) and the Institute of Medicine’s (IOM). At the NAS and IOM, she developed and administered a variety of programs, working with academic faculty, scientists, engineers, clinicians, business leaders and policy experts. She served as the study director for six National Academies reports, including: Toward Precision Medicine: Building a Knowledge Network for Biomedical Research and a New Taxonomy of Disease (2011), Determining Core Capabilities in Chemical and Biological Defense Science and Technology (2012) and Sharing Clinical Trial Data: Maximizing Benefits, Minimizing Risk (2015.)

    Dr. Hook-Barnard was a postdoctoral research fellow at the National Institutes of Health. She earned her PhD in Microbiology-Medicine from the Department of Molecular Microbiology and Immunology at the University of Missouri.
