http://www.ucsf.edu/news/20... It sounds straight out of a Frankenstein novel, but UCSF's Zev Gartner is working to create a living, working model of the human mammary gland that grows, ages and responds to hormone signals just like the real thing.
It all begins with micro-tissues, made out of living cells and cultured in 3D. This is how it's done.

We come to work every morning driven and passionate, hoping for a brighter future for our patients, our students, and the communities we serve.

On July 17, 2014, Sam Hawgood, MBBS, was appointed chancellor of UC San Francisco, succeeding Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH, who served as chancellor from 2009 to 2014. In September, journalist Sean Elder sat down with him to get a personal sense of the man who has served the University, in one capacity or another, for over 30 years. To learn more about Hawgood’s vision for UCSF, which he shared in his 2014 State of the University address, visit ucsfchancellor.ucsf.edu.

The “Mission in a Minute” series is a way for researchers, clinicians, educators and others to communicate directly with their respective audience. The one-minute video series showcases the work they are doing at UCSF, its significance and how it relates to UCSF's overall mission.
Following the student-initiated White Coats for Black Lives demonstration, the 2015 School of Medicine Leadership Retreat was a forum for conversations about race and racism in health and health care. Leaders and students shared ideas on how to improve the climate at UCSF, patient care and the approach to research and education. As a number of both “Act Fast” and “Think Big” projects are starting to take shape, the lessons learned at the retreat continue to reverberate with representative voices of a cross-section of attendees.
Each year the respective Nobel Committees send individual invitations to thousands of members of academies, university professors, scientists from numerous countries, previous Nobel Laureates, members of parliamentary assemblies and others, asking them to submit candidates for the Nobel Prizes for the coming year. These nominators are chosen in such a way that as many countries and universities as possible are represented over time. (source: http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/nomination/)
