Transforming Breakthroughs into Life-sustaining Solutions
Creating Materials, Building Devices

The Kidney Project seeks to develop a bioartificial kidney as a compact, surgically implanted, free-standing device to treat end-stage renal disease (ESRD).

Envisioning Amazing Technologies

Dr. Lotz’s laboratory work focuses on identifying mechanisms of disc degeneration, developing novel diagnostics and therapies for low back pain, and spinal instrumentation.

Emerging Fellows Program

The HIVE Postdoctoral Fellows Program seeks to inspire and encourage young bioengineers to explore their creativity in addressing the challenges of health care in new, innovative and collaborative ways.


Health Innovations via Engineering (HIVE) is an initiative to strengthen the community of engineers across UCSF.

Through supporting and promoting efforts of our finest engineers, HIVE aims to transform the amazing discoveries of basic science into applicable technological solutions for health. HIVE is a virtual meeting place of ideas and technology exchange. It is also an address for clinicians to reference engineering needs and find engineering solutions. HIVE is a core to organize enriched relationships with other engineering-enabled institutions, and a hive from which the university builds bridges to engineer innovations in healthcare.
