Institute for Systems Biology Announces Executive Changes

After 17 years at the helm of the Institute for Systems Biology, Dr. Leroy Hood is stepping down in January 2018. Hood became senior vice president and chief science officer of Providence St. Joseph Health after the health system purchased ISB in 2016. While he's stepping down as president, Hood will remain on ISB's board of directors and continue to lead the 30-member Hood Lab within the organization. James Heath will take over as president of ISB starting January 2018. He is currently a chemistry and molecular and medical pharmacology professor at the California Institute of Technology. He is also the co-director of the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at the University of California Los Angeles and the director of the NanoSystems Biology Cancer Center. As the new president of ISB, Heath will set the direction for the institute's future research and education programs, provide strategic and operational leadership, and direct ISB's efforts in commercializing discoveries and launching spin-out companies. Heath will work closely with Hood and Providence to establish approaches toward translating basic concepts into scientific demonstrations, and then into quantitative tools to be applied to patient health and clinical trials.
