SAN FRANCISCO The city government of San Francisco hopes to expand a life-science research center in one of the city’s neighborhoods, according to published reports.
The San Francisco Chronicle reported Thursday that mayor Gavin Newsom wanted to expand the life-science and biotech hub in the Mission Bay neighborhood to Pier 70 and the former Hunters Point Naval Shipyard, which lie to the south.
The program, called BioSF, will involve hiring a city staff member who will promote and develop the local biotech industry, and is modeled on ChinaSF, an earlier program designed to attract investment from Chinese companies, according to the Chronicle.
