Project Overview

The Joan and Sanford I. Weill Neurosciences Building will bring together and expand psychiatry research with other basic neuroscience research, as well as clinical and support spaces. The building will house basic science labs and clinical and translational programs, including the new Global Brain Health Institute (GBHI), numerous clinical programs, and the UCSF Institute for Neurodegenerative Diseases (IND), which works to reduce the scale and impact of dementia around the world by training and supporting a new generation of leaders to translate research into effective policy and practice.

The six-story building will include:

  • Co-location of wet and dry research labs on the same floors, which provides better opportunities for collaboration between labs
  • Wet lab space for the Department of Psychiatry to complement the proposed office and outpatient psychiatric building at 2130 Third Street.
  • Neurology outpatient clinics that expand clinical offerings and consolidate more of UCSF Health’s neurology services at Mission Bay.
