UCSF receives funding for building from California stem cell agency
Date:5/7/2008

Signifying a milestone in the evolution of its pioneering stem cell program, the University of California, San Francisco today received a $34.9 million grant from the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine to help support the construction of a regenerative medicine building on its campus.

The $119 million building, designed by renowned New York architect Rafael Violy, was approved by the UC Regents in March, contingent on UCSF receiving a portion of funding from CIRM. The remainder of funds is being raised from philanthropic donations. Ray and Dagmar Dolby donated $16 million to launch a fund raising campaign for the building in 2006. Other gifts are in development.

The building which was praised in the CIRM evaluation as a breathtaking building that exudes collaboration and interaction is a series of split-level floors with terraced grass roofs and solar orientation. Open labs flow into each other, with office/interaction areas located on the circulation route between the labs, allowing, the evaluation concluded, for the entire research community in the building [to] interact.

The facility is one of 12 planned facilities awarded funds by CIRMs governing board, under a competitive, two-stage application process that began last August with 17 facility applications. The process was administered by the CIRM Scientific and Medical Facilities Working Group (FWG), which evaluated the buildings on their scientific merit and technical value. The FWG announced their evaluations in April. UCSFs building tied for the highest score. Acting on the FWGs recommendations, the board today voted to issue $271 million in funds to the selected buildings.

The opportunity to construct the UCSF building signals a turning point in the history not only of UCSFs program, but in the field overall, says UCSF Chancellor J. Michael Bishop. The CIRM funding will allow universities throughout California to establish the infrastructure to support
