Salute to Excellence Gala 2018

Celebrating 20 years, this gala will take place at the Fairmont San Francisco on Saturday, April 21, 2018. Our goal is to raise $200,000 to fund liver research and increase awareness of liver health through support, education, and advocacy.

The Salute to Excellence Gala recognizes individuals in the Bay Area who have made an outstanding contribution to the fields of biotechnology, medicine, business and philanthropy.

This year we are proud to honor David Beier, JD, Managing Director, Bay City Capital, Stewart Cooper, MD, Chief, Division of Hepatology, Director of Research & Kalmanovitz Liver Immunology Laboratory, California Pacific Medical Center, and Gregg Alton, Executive Vice President, Corporate and Medical Affairs, Gilead Sciences, Inc.
