About the Living Therapeutics Initiative

The Living Therapeutics Initiative creates a seamless continuum from the earliest stages of discovery all the way through to patient treatment in our hospitals.

UCSF Chancellor Sam Hawgood, MBBS

The Living Therapeutics Initiative (LTI) will bring together UCSF’s vast scientific and clinical expertise to accelerate research and quickly advance promising therapies to clinical trials for patients who have few, if any, good treatment options.

As a federation of previously established UCSF initiatives, disciplines, and departments, the LTI will allow disparate research and patient-care programs to share information, tools, and platforms.

The LTI will connect tools and expertise from across the ecosystem of UCSF initiatives and partner institutions working to advance cell-based therapeutics.
