While the Bay Area is known for its much-celebrated technology and internet culture, you’ll find far more than Facebook in San Francisco. Biotechnology and medical research are booming in this global city, home to the UCSF Medical Center and its colossal research campus. The UCSF network operates more than 20 unique facilities across San Francisco, not to mention the regional and statewide UC networks.
The Bay Area fosters an entrepreneurial and innovative spirit, and hosts countless high tech and biotech startups. The lifestyle is a serious draw, as well — “The City By the Bay” showcases an eclectic mix of food, art, and music that’s been known for making waves since the dawn of the hippie counterculture in the 1960’s.
