The UC San Francisco community is deeply saddened by the passing of Andrew S. Grove, a Silicon Valley pioneer who applied his drive for innovation to advocacy for advancements in health care and the treatment of cancer and Parkinson’s disease.

A longtime resident of the Bay Area, Grove was former CEO and chairman of Intel Corp., one of the world’s largest manufacturers of semiconductors. His impact extended into philanthropic and volunteer endeavors, including at UCSF, where he helped lead a fundraising effort in the late 1990s that was integral to establishing the UCSF Mission Bay campus. He also supported a number of groundbreaking research and educational programs.

“Andy Grove was a champion of innovation in the health sciences,” said UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS. “His generous and tireless support of UCSF has transformed our university and helped accelerate our research into breakthrough treatments and better patient care.”
