[Source Ken Alltucker, The Arizona Republic] – The pending departure of University of Arizona Bio5 Director Vicki Chandler will leave the state’s top two university bioscience labs with new leadership.

Chandler will leave Bio5 next month to take a position with the San Francisco-based Gordon and Berry Moore Foundation.

George Poste last year announced he will step down as director of Arizona State University’s Biodesign Institute. His replacement could be named early this year.

Both publicly funded research labs, created to spur innovation and high-paying jobs in Arizona, face steep budget cuts this year due to the slowdown in sales-tax collections that provide the main source of state funding.
