11.15.2004 - UC Berkeley chancellor named to Prop. 71 stem cell oversight committee
"BERKELEY - Chancellor Robert J. Birgeneau was named today (Monday, Nov. 15) to a committee charged with overseeing the implementation of California's new $3 billion stem cell research effort.
'I'm pleased and honored by this appointment,' Birgeneau said, after Lt. Gov. Cruz Bustamante made the announcement at a press conference at UC Berkeley's Hearst Memorial Mining Building. 'This is an important responsibility, and there is much work to be done.'"
Only two months as a Chancellor in the US and he is already getting more state government appointments. I hope he will be as good at fundraising as he is at landing prestige-enhancing positions.
