UC Regents Approve Plans, Funding for New Research and Academic Building at ZSFG

UC San Francisco is moving forward with plans to construct a new research and academic building at Zuckerberg San Francisco General Hospital and Trauma Center (ZSFG) following approval by the UC Regents on Nov. 13.

The new building will allow UCSF’s research and education programs at ZSFG to continue to advance by providing modern research and academic facilities, including wet and dry laboratories, a Patient  Research Center, and teaching and collaboration areas.

“The vision for this building, which began over a decade ago, has been developed into a beautiful, efficient, and modern design through many hours of hard work and is now about to become a reality,” said Sue Carlisle, MD, PhD, vice dean for UCSF at ZSFG. “UCSF research and academic programs at ZSFG have produced world-class biomedical innovations, clinical improvements, and top students in their current, outmoded spaces for decades. These programs will soon thrive in a state-of-the-art facility, where they will continue to develop new research to improve the health of all of our communities worldwide. It will also allow our physician scientists to continue to provide excellent clinical care for our patients in San Francisco while advancing these studies.”
