Learn about Gladstone's second president in this video celebrating our 40th anniversary.


In 2010, when the Gladstone trustees lured Sandy Williams from Duke University, where he’d been dean of the School of Medicine since 2001, the global economy was still reeling from the recession of 2009. It marked the beginning of a new era in the economics of research.

Williams led the effort to increase philanthropic gifts at Gladstone and focused on bringing the science even closer to patients by increasing revenues from intellectual property and through sponsored research agreements with the commercial sector.
