| Tourism is the backbone of the San Francisco economy. Many large financial institutions, multinational banks and venture capital firms are based in or have regional headquarters in the city. With over 30 international financial institutions, seven Fortune 500 companies, and a large support infrastructure of professional services – including law, public relations, architecture and design – also with significant presence in the city, San Francisco is designated as one of the ten Beta World Cities.
San Francisco's economy has increasingly become tied to that of its Bay Area neighbor San Jose and Silicon Valley to its south, sharing the need for highly educated workers with specialized skills. San Francisco has been positioning itself as a biotechnology and biomedical hub and research center. The Mission Bay neighborhood, site of a second campus of UCSF, fosters a budding industry and serves as headquarters of the California Institute for Regenerative Medicine, the public agency funding stem cell research programs statewide. Medical science is an important high-technology industry in the San Francisco area with hundreds of companies in the Bay Area reportedly heavily involved in research and development of pharmaceutical products, medical electronics, and genetic engineering. As of 2009, there were 1,800 full-time biochemists and biophysicists employed in San Francisco. San Francisco Info Source
