Michael joined the Research Resource Program (RRP) team in 2018 and currently serves as Executive Director. His goal is to support the development, implementation and support of programs that will have a broad impact across UCSF Core & Shared Resource Facilities and enhance UCSF research capabilities. By working with the broad stake holders to maintain communication channels and build bridges, the RRP team contributes to the success of UCSF cores and shared resources.     

Michael has been at UCSF since 2003, working in labs and Cores where he became increasingly engaged in meeting general challenges faced by the research community. He has also led and worked with individual Cores to improve their operations and has coordinated funding for much needed instrumentation and operational support. Previously, he was the Director for the Parnassus Flow Cytometry (PFCC) and Monoclonal Antibody Cores and continues to advise both Cores. He also is a member of the Bluestone lab, working on the development and continuation of clinical trials involving the use of Regulatory T cells (Tregs) for the treatment of various ailments such as Type-1 diabetes.

Michael has a BA in Biology from UC Santa Cruz and an MS in Biomedical Laboratory Sciences from San Francisco State.
