News & Events

The DEB supports a regular series of seminars on the first Friday of the month following the departmental meeting along with a light lunch. In addition the department supports occasional "pizza seminars" on other Fridays as well as periodic special presentations and workshops.

We highlight recent research findings from DEB faculty resulting in new discoveries, effective interventions, policy changes and dissemination activities.

Finally, we provide a link to on-going news from around the UCSF campus more generally.

New Location

In October 2014 we moved into a new building where, for the first time in many years, almost the whole department is in one location on the new Mission Bay Campus overlooking the San Francisco Bay.  Mission Hall is a modern activity based workspace for teaching and research with open workstations surrounded by multiple focus and huddle rooms, lots of natural light, conference rooms of various sizes and a workplace commons for socializing, refreshment and meals. Many of the other population sciences are also located in Mission Hall including Global Health Sciences, the Center for AIDs Prevention Studies, the Clinical and Translational Science Institute, the Bixby Center for Global Reproductive Health, and other related groups. The new building is centrally located between the new UCSF hospital for women, children and cancer and the basic science buildings nearby. Our location will help us realize our vision to improve population health through key cross-disciplinary collaborations with basic, clinical and related population scientists.
