Comparative Effectiveness Research: PCORI Looks to UCLA's Washington

The Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI) is beginning to take shape.

The PCORI board is expected to be announced by the Government Accountability Office on September 23.

Our understanding is that UCLA's Eugene Washington will be named the Chairman of the PCORI board. Washington is Vice Chancellor of UCLA Health Sciences and Dean of the David Geffen School of Medicine. Prior to joining UCLA this year, Washington was at the University of California San Francisco, where he was Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost. To read more about Washington, click here.
