Short answer: yes.
Long answer: The University of San Francisco recently showed its commitment to scientific research with the construction of Lo Schiavo Center for Science and Innovation in the middle of campus. This building complex is four stories of classroom space and laboratories. An informational brochure for the new center states that its purpose is to "position USF as a destination for cutting-edge undergraduate study." It just opened in 2013, and USF already had a better-than-average acceptance rate for MD / PhD programs, so this school's prominence in preparing its undergraduates for advanced study is only likely to grow.
