He is an active member of the neuroscience, biomedical science, and bioengineering graduate programs as well as a member of the California Institute For Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3). He also serves as a council member for the UCSF Medical Scientist Training Program (MSTP) and is a Vice-Chair of the Department of Ophthalmology. Dr. Sretavan serves in an advisory capacity for multiple national and international medical research funding agencies as well as scientific journals.

In 2005, Dr. Sretavan received a major research award from the Sandler Family Supporting Foundation for his innovative work on microtechnologies and devices for nerve cell repair. This new project, which lies at the interface of neurobiology, bioengineering, and neurosurgery, has been featured in scientific programs in the public media. Dr. Sretavan currently holds the Edward and Estelle Alexander Chair in Vision Research at UCSF.
