Mark Cavagnero Associates and SmithGroup designed an open, inviting ecosystem to support discovery; researchers and clinicians collaborate and connect in clinics, research centers, and shared facilities fostering a stronger community. Architecture, materials and furniture support patients, visitors and staff with warmth, wood, natural light, accessibility and the space they need for comfort.
"Our goal is to bring together the resources and talent to tackle the most debilitating neurologic disorders and mental diseases,” said Sandy Weill. “By partnering and bringing together the best and brightest in their respective fields and giving them the support and facilities they need, we believe they will have an enormous impact on improving the quality of people’s lives and curing the diseases that will present the biggest challenges to our country in the decades to come.”
“Big goals require close collaboration of large multidisciplinary teams. The UCSF Weill Neurosciences Building will enable widespread sharing of expertise, data and tools to tackle the big problems.” Stephen Hauser, MD, professor of neurology and director of the UCSF Weill Institute for Neurosciences
