The UCSF School of Medicine is one of the most research-intensive Schools in the U.S. and is renowned for its pioneering work in early stage biomedical discovery and translation to effective clinical and population interventions. We are deeply committed to a culture of data sharing, the exchange of creative ideas, and the development of cross-sector, innovative collaborations.

At the UCSF School of Medicine, our research mission spans all departments and disciplines, incorporating internal and external collaborations to forge new discoveries, drive technology, accelerate delivery of preventive interventions, and improve clinical care.

The UCSF health sciences continuum is vast, so it is imperative that we continue to bridge the gap between basic science, clinical, and translational research and implementation, while maintaining focus on our goal of achieving health equity and access.
