We are the San Francisco Bay Area’s premier healthtech ecosystem.
Patients are at the center of everything we do
We offer mentorship, connections, insider knowledge and community to guide entrepreneurs from concept to commercialization of radical innovations.
We are believers in the power of health technology to change lives. Yet we know that the journey of getting a healthtech innovation to market is very challenging. We’re passionate about giving talented entrepreneurs the know-how, connections, and insider information they need to be successful. Our ultimate mission is to improve patients’ lives by reducing time to market for transformative solutions.
The UCSF Rosenman Institute was founded in 2014 and is named after the late Daniel Rosenman, who dedicated 25 years to the field of medical devices. Dan was inventor or co-inventor on 40 U.S. patents and co-founded BioCardia, an interventional cardiology device company. His passion was not only the rapid design of innovative products, but also bringing them to clinicians and patients within a short time period and in a way that focused on the human factors, as well as clinical utility. He was known not just as a brilliant and innovative designer and inventor, but also as a person with a strong moral compass and a genuine focus on human healing and care.
The UCSF Rosenman Institute has been supporting transformative health technology companies from concept to commercialization since 2014.
