The UCSF Rosenman Institute was founded in 2014 under the umbrella of QB3, which has recently moved to UC Berkeley. We’re excited to remain at UCSF and continue working with entrepreneurial faculty, collaborating with other departments, and bringing new innovations to the broader UCSF community. “UCSF is one of the best, if not the best, medical universities in the country,” said Christine Winoto, Executive Director of the UCSF Rosenman Institute. “Through this amazing opportunity given to us by Chancellor Hawgood, I hope more of the innovation that we support will have an impact on patient outcome.”
“The office of EVCP is a central hub that supports diverse interests at UCSF,” said Dan Lowenstein, Executive Vice Chancellor & Provost. “I look forward to seeing UCSF Rosenman collaborate with more departments and support more faculty, students, and staff interested in medical and health technology innovation. This will help further the UCSF mission and inspire innovation that will impact patient outcome.”
The Rosenman Institute welcomes anyone from the UCSF community to attend our seminar series, which hosts pragmatic talks on operational know-how to help entrepreneurs commercialize their technology. Entrepreneurial faculty are encouraged to reach out and connect with us. Examples of how we’ve assisted faculty in the past include introducing them to C-level leaders who can help get their technology off the ground, mentoring faculty on pitch presentations and business strategy, and connecting faculty with the right resources at the right time. Now, as a central department, we look forward to collaborating with other UCSF sectors and supporting more faculty, students, and staff interested in medical and health technology innovation.
