UCSF is launching the Bakar ImmunoX Initiative, an innovative research program that will promote collaborative, cutting-edge research and data sharing to catalyze discoveries about the central role of the immune system in human health and harness its power to treat a wide range of diseases.
He was the heart of UCSF Radiology for the 26 years of his chairmanship, from 1963 to 1989, and led the extraordinary evolution of imaging that began with the early days of CT, MRI, US, PET-CT, interventional radiology, molecular imaging and other modalities.
UCSF researchers have discovered how a mutation in a gene regulator called the TERT promoter confers “immortality” on tumor cells, enabling the unchecked cell division that powers their aggressive growth.
Genetic mutations in a form of non–small cell lung cancer may drive tumor formation by blurring cells’ perception of key growth signals, according to a new laboratory study published Aug. 31, 2018, in Science.
The Resource Allocation Program (RAP), in partnership with many on-campus sources of research funding, facilitates the dissemination, submission, review and award of intramural research funding opportunities on campus.
Thanks to a $6.7 million grant, the newly named UCSF-Stanford Pediatric Device Consortium can focus on the development of revolutionary, low-cost gadgets to diagnose and cure pediatric health conditions.
