Dr. Geoffrey W. Abbott is Vice-Dean for Basic Science Research and Senior Associate Dean for Academic Personnel in the School of Medicine. He is a professor in Department of Physiology & Biophysics. His research focus is potassium channels: their links to human health and disease and as targets for both ancient and modern therapeutics.

The Office of Academic Affairs provides policy analysis, interpretation and training in academic personnel-related issues within the medical school.

Academic Affairs oversees the processing of all UCI School of Medicine academic personnel actions and is responsible for many personnel related activities.

These activities include academic recruitment, appointment, merit and promotion review, faculty development and mentoring, as well as sabbatical leaves.

Our office also oversees applications for special medical permits, faculty diversity programs, employee and labor relations and volunteer clinical faculty administration.
