Integrating research and clinical care to encourage collaboration between researchers and medical teams

Precision, Transparency, Integration, and Activation. Inspired by these design principles, Stantec is completing the complex puzzle for UCSF at the Mission Bay Campus with the Precision Cancer Medicine Building (PCMB). Our relationship with the site goes back to 2007, when we began design on the recently-completed Medical Center at Mission Bay.

The design elegantly draws from the existing building, as the strong horizontal lines of the Gateway MOB continue through to PCMB, alternating with glass fins inspired by the children’s hospital. Transparency echoes the building’s program, with more privacy at street level and a generous use of glass on the upper infusion floors. The massing is set back dramatically at the edges to create an exciting urban street-level experience.

This building will consolidate UCSF’s current solid tumor practices. In addition to clinic space for most cancers, it will house chemotherapy infusion, radiology, pathology, radiation oncology, blood draw, a patient resource center, and support services. Bringing these practices together at Mission Bay, will integrate research and clinical care and encourage collaboration between researchers and medical teams.
