Three universities in the San Francisco Bay Area are coming together to launch a biomedical science center funded by Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and pediatrician Priscilla Chan, his wife. The $600 million center, known as the Chan Zuckerberg Biohub, is the first investment made by the Chan Zuckerberg Initiative, a philanthropic limited liability company created last year to improve education and cure disease, among other goals. Researchers at Stanford University, as well as two University of California campuses, San Francisco and Berkeley, will work together at the center, which will be located on UCSF's campus.
