The MBA-style program, which Andy helped establish with a $1.5 million donation, will target students from both medical and high-tech fields. The program begins this fall. The newspaper interviewed Andy and Dr. Sue Desmond-Hellmann, chancellor of UCSF formerly of Genentech, about the program and their motivations for the effort.
