UCSF Makes Lemonade, Receives $1.35M for Pediatric Bioresearch

Posted by Robert Larkin on Tue, Jan 20, 2015

When life gives you lemons, make lemonade… and if you’ve got lemonade, make a lemonade stand. However, when Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation gives you millions in research funding, now you can help cure childhood cancer. Thanks to a little girl who once made lemonade to raise money for childhood cancer research, two UC San Francisco faculty members are among researchers being nationally acknowledged for their work in pediatric oncology.

Gladstone Institutes Advance Stem Cell Research at UCSF Mission Bay

Posted by BCI Staff on Wed, Dec 05, 2012

It might or might not surprise you that some very strong private biomedical research institute funding at the University of California San Francisco campus comes from the father of the first enclosed southern California shopping mall, on the one hand, and the founder of Star Trek on the other. Those two innovative individuals, J. David Gladstone and Gene Roddenberry respectively, have left much of their considerable legacy to science research into understanding human disease. A year ago this time, the Gladstone Institutes welcomed the Roddenberry Foundation into its research family with the establishment of the Roddenberry Center for Stem Cell Biology and Medicine within the Gladstone walls on Owens Street in Mission Bay. Two months ago one of the Gladstone's senior research scientists won the Nobel Prize for his groundbreaking work with induced pluripotent stem cells. Those events, in conjunction with the 3 decades of research milestones made by their scientists, as well as their affiliation with UCSF and its world-class stem cell research program position the Gladstone solidly to meet their 21st Century mission goal:
