UCSF has built its foundation here as a brick-and-mortar biomedical research campus in San Francisco, with ties to both local communities and to the more than 50 countries around the world in which it works. Increasingly, medicine, health sciences research, and education are breaking out of their local silos to reach out across industries and around the world for more knowledge, more partnerships, and greater impact.
Over the next decade, new data sharing, innovative ways of collaborating and learning at a distance, and digital tools for practicing medicine remotely will expand UCSF’s already impressive global reach.
The opportunity space: for UCSF to expand its footprint of influence, action and impact as medical and research resources around the world are untethered from traditional institutions. And to do so while maintain strong bonds with local Bay Area communities and experimenting with new, unexpected partnerships.
