Publication date: 2/10/2014, pages 1-20

This case study describes how a team determined the optimal way to catalyze collaboration and innovation at UCSF Diabetes Center, by using seed funds from a long-standing philanthropist. The case not only shows how the team members collaborated among themselves to develop the new initiative, but also how they came up with a simple mechanism to spark collaboration among the UCSF research scientists & clinical community. The (A) case ends with an eye towards the future as the team prepares to meet with the funding recipients. Please note: This case also has a (B) supplement available. The (B) case provides news of what happened to the initiative after the first two funding cycles.
