UCSF: New MS Therapy Coming Soon Thanks to NIH & Foundation Research Funding

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Mon, Oct 30, 2017

Scientists at UC San Francisco recently published the results of their Phase II Clinical Trial, which showed that an antihistamine restores nervous system function in patients with chronic multiple sclerosis (MS). In this landmark study, the antihistamine, clemastine fumarate, is the first medication that has been shown to reliably restore any brain function damaged by a neurological disease in human patients.

UCSF, Mission Bay Continues Campus  Expansion with Two New Science Buildings

Posted by Rebecca Inch-Partridge on Wed, Oct 18, 2017

In 2003 UCSF opened its first building on the Mission Bay Campus, Genetech Hall. Over the last fourteen years, as the campus expanded, it became a biotechnology hub and a place where the future clinical researchers, doctors, nurses, pharmacists and dentists learn with the most modern tools available. In 2015 UCSF Medical at Mission Bay became San Francisco’s first new hospital in 30 year. This 289-bed complex is actually made up of three specialty hospitals under one roof: Benioff Children’s Hospital, Betty Irene Moore Women’s Hospital and Bakar Cancer Hospital. Soon the next phase of expansion at the UCSF Mission Bay Campus will begin with two new science buildings.
