New program aims to treat world's "neglected" diseases

Founded in 2000, QB3 is one of four California Institutes for Science and Innovation, each involving multi-campus collaborations and combining state and private resources to advance research critical to sustaining economic growth and competitiveness. Each Institute seeks major advances by combining the expertise of different disciplines, and bringing together the strengths of different campuses. With headquarters at UCSF, QB3 brings together scientists and engineers at UCSF, UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz. It is the only Institute devoted to research to advance human health. Others focus on telecommunications, information technology and nanotechnology
