Parnassus serves as the major campus and will include many research labs, the 600-bed UCSF Medical Center, Langley Porter Psychiatric Institute, the UCSF Library, University of California, San Francisco Archives and Special Collections, and UCSF Benioff Children's Hospital San Francisco. The Schools of Dentistry, Pharmacy, Medicine, Nursing, and the Biomedical Sciences graduate program are located at Parnassus. It also houses the UCSF neurology outpatient practice that serves as a referral center of most of northern California and Reno, Nevada. UCSF's Beckman Vision Center is located at the Parnassus campus. it's a center for the diagnosis, treatment and research of all regions of eye care, as well as vision correction operation. Also located on the Parnassus campus is the UCSF Fetal Treatment Center, multidisciplinary care center dedicated to the diagnosis, treatment, and long term follow up of fetal birth defects. UCSF's Mission Bay Campus, also located in San Francisco, is the biggest continuing biomedical construction project in the world. The 43-acre 17 ha Mission Bay campus, opened in 2003 with construction still continuing, holds extra research space and buildings to foster biotechnology and life sciences businesses. it'll double the size of UCSF's research enterprise over the next ten years. The biotechnology company Genentech contributed $50 million toward construction of a building as part of a settlement about supposed theft of UCSF technology some number of decades earlier. Also located on the Mission Bay campus, the Arthur and Toni Rembe Rock Hall was intended by Csar Pelli and opened in February 2004. The building is named in honor of Arthur Rock and his wife, who made a $25 million gift to the university. Byers Hall serves as the headquarters for the California Institute for Quantitative Biosciences QB3, a cooperative effort between the UC campuses at San Francisco, Berkeley, and Santa Cruz. The building is named after venture capitalist Brook Byers, co chair of UCSF's capital campaign that finished in 2005 and raised over $1.6 billion. also, the William J. Rutter Center, intended with the bordering 600-space parking structure by Ricardo Legorreta, opened in October 2005 and holds a strength and recreation center, swimming pools, student services, and conference buildings. The building is named in honor of William J. Rutter, former Chairman of the university's Department of Biochemistry & Biophysics and co founder of Chiron company. A housing complex for 750 students and postdoctoral fellows and an 800-space parking garage also opened in late 2005. And a 4th research building, intended by Rafael Violy and named the Helen Diller Family Cancer Research Building, opened in June 2009. Two extra research buildings chosen for neuroscience and cardiovascular research are now in the planning and design phase.
