October 22, 2015 -- Mission Bay Conference Center – UCSF IT recently hosted the enterprise-wide expo, Sharecase, on the Mission Bay campus. Attended by over 1,000 UCSF clinicians, researchers, administrators and students, this free event is in its third year, and continues to draw huge crowds looking to learn more about how IT is collaborating across the entire enterprise.

Doors opened at 9 a.m. for attendees to hear Dr. Atul Butte, MD, PhD the Director, UCSF’s Institute for Computational Health Sciences, present: Translating a Trillion Points of Data into Therapies, Diagnostics, and New Insights into Disease. His hour-long presentation engaged listeners as he outlined how vast amounts of data now available to researchers will change the development of drugs and therapies, diagnosis and patient care.

Attendees had a chance to join one of 50+ talks on subjects ranging from:

  • A Virtual Cloud Infrastructure at the MAC
  • Video Conferencing and Collaboration at UCSF
  • Leveraging Technology to Drive Outcomes & Performance Improvements, and
  • A joint presentation by the FBI and IT Security who covered: They’re Out to Get Us: Security Threats Facing UCSF.


Attendees dined on the free lunch famously associated with Sharecase, and spent the day networking, visiting the 20+ booths featuring a range of IT services and vendors available at UCSF.  Another annual tradition at Sharecase is hearing from IT leadership directly.  This year the team spent over an hour on the HOT SEAT fielding questions and taking comments from attendees on an array of IT programs and initiatives.
