For Corporations

At UCSF, we partner with corporations from all areas of industry. We facilitate mutually beneficial collaborations supporting our mission of advancing health worldwide through excellence in research, education, and patient care.

Partnership Opportunities

To achieve the highest level of innovation in science and health care, UCSF relies on the generous support of corporate partners across a range of industry sectors, combining the greatest business minds with the academic expertise of UCSF’s world-class faculty members. These partnerships unite leading-edge research with real-world applications that impact the Bay Area and beyond.

Areas in which we commonly collaborate with industry partners include:

  • Sponsorship and naming opportunities that increase corporate visibility and brand awareness, including events, symposia, and naming of public spaces on campus
  • Partnerships and alliances that provide crucial programmatic support for medical innovation and health care centers across the University
  • Charitable in-kind donations of medical equipment and other physical property
  • Research and development collaborations, in which companies provide direct support to a specific laboratory, faculty member, area of research, or program of interest
  • Student and faculty fellowships, which are the foundation of future discoveries and advancements in the health sciences at UCSF
  • Unrestricted charitable cash gifts, which provide much-needed flexibility for the University to direct funds where they are most useful

We believe in the power of partnership to further a shared vision of advancing science, technology, and health care.
