State Partners

We work closely with a wide range of partners across the UC system.

University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, and Development (UC BRAID)

The University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, and Development (UC BRAID) is a consortium of University of California health campuses - Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego, and San Francisco, each of which is a recipient of an NIH Clinical and Translational Science Award.

Building on the combined strengths of the individual campus, UC BRAID aims to accelerate research and improve health through collaboration, resource sharing and infrastructure development. We aim to catalyze, accelerate, and reduce the barriers for biomedical, clinical, and translational research across the UC system. The effort includes identifying shared challenges and developing system-wide solutions.

Areas of continued attention include industry contractinginstitutional review boards(IRBs), and participant recruitment. UC BRAID’s early successes in sharing data and infrastructure were demonstrated in the cohort identification tool UC ReX, which now serves as a model for the shared benefit of a nationwide collaboration.

UCSF-UC Hastings Consortium: Bridging Health Science & Law

The UCSF-UC Hastings Consortium is dedicated to improving interdisciplinary communication and collaboration between the law and health sciences, and seeks to institute and support broad-based initiatives in education, research, and service. UCSF and UC Hastings have combined their considerable talents and resources and directed them at the juncture where law and the health sciences meet, with the concomitant aims of better informing the law regarding the health sciences and better enabling the health sciences to serve the public good.
