The state-of-the-art facility heralds a new era for UCSF, creating a collaborative hub for one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive neuroscience centers. Home to Nobel Prize-winning research on the nervous system and brain, the facility serves as a global destination for researchers to study and develop innovative treatments for intractable brain diseases.
