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.
UCSF Mission Bay campus is now over 300-acres and includes:
- QB3, the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences: A consortium of UC Berkeley, UC Santa Cruz and UCSF, where the biotechnology industry comes together with academic research
- Genentech Hall: This five-story building houses programs in structural and chemical biology as well as molecular, cellular and developmental biology.
- Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall: The home to programs in human genetics, developmental biology, developmental neuroscience and the Center for Brain Development.
- Helen Diller Family Cancer Research Building: Scientists investigating cancer’s basic biological mechanisms are based in this building.
- Orthopedic Institute: The institute is a major center of outpatient treatment, research and training for musculoskeletal conditions, injuries and sports medicine.
- Smith Cardiovascular Research Building: Home to research scientists and clinicians focused on achieving new understanding and treatment for heart and vascular diseases.
- Sandler Neurosciences Center: The five-story, 237,000 square foot building brings under one roof the Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases, Department of Neurology, W.M. Keck Foundation Center for Integrative Neuroscience, and the Memory and Aging Center.

What’s Next at Mission Bay?
The UC Board of Regents recently approved plans for two new building projects on the UCSF Mission Bay Campus: a new neuroscience facility as well as a new psychiatry building.
The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Neurosciences Building, is being made possible in part by a $185 million gift from the Weill family. The 274,000-square-foot building will serve as the headquarters for the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences. It will house wet and dry labs, offices, clinical care services and clinical research space. Neurology outpatient clinics will be situated on the ground and second floors. Construction will begin this year, and completion is targeted for 2020. The project budget is estimated at $357.6 million.
The second project is the UCSF Child, Teen and Family Center and Department of Psychiatry Building, funded in part by a $50 million anonymous donation announced in 2015. This facility will provide mental health services to Bay Area adults, children and families. The 170,000-square-foot building will house outpatient mental health and related pediatric, neurology and pre-term birth obstetric clinics. It will also include education, research, and office space. Construction of the building is expected to begin in early 2018 and be completed by early 2020.
UCSF Researchers Meet with Laboratory Equipment Suppliers at Bioresearch Product Faire:
Laboratoty equipment suppliers wishing to improve their lab product sales in 2018 should plan on displaying their products at the bioresearch product faire hosted by Biotechnology Calendar Inc on January 17th. This biotechtrade show event is a great opportunity to meet face to face with the researchers at this expanding campus and discuss their lab supply needs. While in the area, make the most of your marketing budget by also attending the bioresearch product faire held the next day, 1-18-2018 at the UCSF Parnassus Campus.
