Research Stories

Our research at UCSF is extensive--- from uncovering the riskiest locales for C. difficile transmission to preventing the ravages of chronic kidney disease. 

 

Facilities

Our campus at Mission Bay has grown in leaps and bounds (UCSF’s research enterprise at MB is now approximately the same size as the one at Parnassus), but is also surrounded by a number of pharmaceutical, device, and technology companies that seek partnerships with our world-class researchers.

New research facilities are slated to come on line in the next few years at Parnassus, the VA, and ZSFG.
