<P>AFFILIATION ADVANCES CHILDRENS HEALTH Good news abounds for young patients on both sides of the San Francisco Bay: UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital and Childrens Hospital & Research Center Oakland affiliated in January. The affiliation has the potential to provide better health care value to consumers through higher quality care, lower costs, and more coordinated access to services at hospi- tal locations in San Francisco and across the Bay, as well as at medical facilities throughout Northern California. Among the top priorities of the partnership are strengthening the existing talent and programs in basic and clinical research and patient care at the two premier institutions, as well as attracting new expertise to accelerate new solutions for childrens health. In recognition of the affiliation, Childrens Hospital Oakland is now named UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital Oakland, and UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital is named UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospital San Francisco. Together, the hospitals are now known as UCSF Benioff Childrens Hospitals. See related philanthropy story on page 36. BREAST MODELING Zev Gartner, PhD, is building a fully func- tional, 3-D human mammary gland. His rapid and precise method, consid- ered among the most complex devised to date, has won him a National Institutes of Health Directors New Innovator Award and an accompanying $1.5 million in research funding. With a detailed in vitro model of the human mammary gland, we can poke and prod in any way that we want – at the level of individual cells, groups of cells, whole regions of the tissue, or even the entire gland – to understand how the tissue works, says Gartner, an assistant profes- sor of pharmaceutical chemistry at UC San Francisco. This way, we dont have to study our questions in mice or do experi- ments in human beings. His models, made of cultured cells harvested from breast reduction surgeries, will provide insight into how normal human tissues assemble themselves during devel- opment and, conversely, how they break down in diseases such as breast cancer. Gartners work holds great promise for the testing of novel therapies as well. This marks the fourth year in a row that a young UCSF faculty member has won this highly selective funding, designed to support exceptionally creative new inves- tigators who propose highly innovative research projects that have the potential for unusually high impact. Its a very slippery slope … from checking your email, to lying awake with anxiety.
