Mission Bay to Mark Decade of Bioscience Discovery
Ten years ago, UCSF opened the doors of its ﬁrst research building at Mission Bay, launching a new bioscience community in a once-neglected area of the city.
A decade later, Mission Bay is a vibrant, integrated campus that's home to three Nobel laureates and 2,500 UCSF faculty, clinicians, postdoctoral scholars and students, with another 1,000 in the surrounding area.
With their colleagues at the Parnassus and Mount Zion campuses, these scientists and clinicians are breaking new ground in understanding disease and ﬁnding new ways to harness science to save lives.
The UCSF Mission Bay campus also is a growing ecosystem of entrepreneurs, pharmaceutical companies and venture capital ﬁrms that have spun out of the University of California or come to Mission Bay to be part of the innovation for which UCSF is increasingly known. Together, they are a vital new asset for the city of San Francisco and the gold standard for bioscience centers worldwide.
