Hi Gary,
No symbol is needed -- here is our standard info on how to cite UCSF  

However, there is some wiggle room depending on how figure credits are  
usually done in your newsletter.  The page above suggests an  
acknowledgement, literature citation, and URL, but if there is no  
provision for literature citations in your newsletter's figure  
credits, for example, you could just use the statement and possibly  
the URL.

Thanks for using Chimera!
