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. The (B) case provides what happened to the initiative after the first two funding cycles.
