The Center of Interdisciplinary Science for Art, Architecture and Archaeology (CISA3) is dedicated to a blend of education, research and field projects at the University of California, San Diego. The Center is training a new generation of interdisciplinary experts in art, art history, science and technology. Friends of CISA3 is a philanthropic initiative to support Center activities and help fund important projects such as the search for the lost Renaissance masterpiece mural, “The Battle of Anghiari” by Leonardo da Vinci, as well as projects underway with the San Diego Museum of Art, the Uffizi Gallery, and a study of the Palazzo Medici, long considered the birthplace of the Renaissance. Today the need for such patrons is greater than ever. Generous supporters are needed to preserve cultural heritage for the next generation.

Your support at any level is meaningful. For more information about ways to support CISA3's mission, please contact Sarah Beckman, Director of Development, at or (858) 534-7320.
