Top scientists oppose arena site in an open letter to Mayor Edwin M. Lee:
Dear Mayor Lee,
We write as faculty members at UCSF who are also members of the US National
Academy of Sciences. Many of us either are, or have previously been, leaders on this Campus. We have seen this University rise to true excellence over the course of the past 40 years, and we look forward to an even greater future for UCSF and the exciting private biotech and medical organizations that it has attracted to Mission Bay. But we are seriously concerned that this future is threatened by the plan to construct a very large sports, entertainment, and event arena in our midst.
