Summary

On 25 October, the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), broke ground for a new campus at Mission Bay, a 20-minute drive across town from its Parnassus Heights campus. There, UCSF plans to build 12 research buildings, a recreation and community center, student housing, and parking garages--a complete second campus that will double UCSF's research space and house 500 labs when it is completed in 10 to 20 years. The faculty look to bright new labs at Mission Bay but worry that they will lose the cohesiveness that has made UCSF so successful.
