UCSF Mission Bay began as a fortuitous convergence of several forces — from UCSF’s need to expand from its cramped campuses at Parnassus Heights and Mount Zion, to then-Mayor Willie Brown’s desire to develop the biotech industry that could provide jobs in San Francisco for generations to come, to Catellus Development Corp.’s willingness to work with multiple parties to create something special on the 303-acre canvas that is now known as the Mission Bay neighborhood.
The initial land parcel for the UCSF Mission Bay campus included 29.2 acres donated by Catellus and 13.2 acres donated by the city of San Francisco in a landmark deal struck by then Mayor Brown, Nelson Rising, former chief executive officer of Catellus, and Bruce Spaulding, former vice chancellor for University Advancement and Planning.
Along the shores of San Francisco Bay, just south of AT&T Park, a long-underused swath of land began to realize a potential greater than anything the city could have imagined when, in 2003, UCSF opened Genentech Hall, the first building on its Mission Bay campus.
Over the past decade, UCSF Mission Bay has bloomed into a vibrant and vital campus and biotechnology hub, where academia and industry come together for cutting-edge, lifesaving research.
The medical center is a 289-bed, integrated complex with specialty hospitals for children, women and cancer patients.Michael Bishop, MD, Nobel laureate (1989) and former UCSF chancellor (1998-2009).Bishop established a public art program to coincide with the ongoing construction of the new campus “to create an environment that will be a credit and benefit to the entire community, a stimulating and pleasant place to work and visit, and a permanent legacy to the city.” Artwork in the collection named after Bishop includes a sculpture by San Francisco native Richard Serra; more than 100 pieces of contemporary furniture by Seattle-based artist Roy Mc Makin and team, which are placed in the 3.2-acre campus green named Koret Quad; a five-pendant chandelier at Genentech Hall by California artist Jim Isermann; and a sculpture of four large figures, carved out of a single tree, by German artist Stephan Balkenhol, in the Rutter Center, the social center of the campus.The California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences, also known as QB3, a consortium of UCSF, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz, based on the campus, emphasizes quantitative approaches to the biosciences as a means to develop the tools to predict biological processes.Through this approach, using sophisticated equipment, scientists work to predict exactly how a protein’s function will change if they alter its composition, how an organism will behave if a gene is modified and how patients will respond to a new therapy.The development of the UCSF Mission Bay campus has been a significant catalyst to the San Francisco Bay Area biotechnology industry.In fact, UCSF’s presence at Mission Bay has enabled San Francisco to attract bioscience back within city limits, growing from one company when UCSF's Genentech Hall opened in 2003, to more than 100 in 2013.
