Dr. Martin Kampmann was named a Chan Zuckerberg Biohub Investigator. He is part of the first cohort of 47 scientists from UCSF, Stanford and Berkeley to join the Biohub.
The Biohub is a non-for-profit research organization with the goal to develop new technologies that transform biomedical research. It is funded by a philanthropic investment of $600 million by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg and pediatrician Priscilla Chan.
The Biohub is located directly adjacent to the UCSF Mission Bay campus, less than a 5-minute walk from the Kampmann Lab. Dr. Kampmann and members of his group will collaborate with other Biohub investigators to develop new technologies to reveal cellular mechanisms of neurodegenerative diseases and to uncover new potential therapeutic strategies.
