Innovation, discovery and collaboration power life-saving research. UCSF is dedicated to advancing health worldwide through preeminent biomedical research. Within our overarching advancing health worldwide mission, UCSF supports collaboration among UCSF researchers and researchers from other U.S. and global programs and institutions.

for Researchers

  • UCSF Coronavirus & COVID-19 Research
    From CTSI, Open Proposals is an invitation to contribute to team discussions on Coronavirus and COVID-19 related research at UCSF. Share, comment, contribute, and communicate about relevant ideas, plans, and discovery. This is a UCSF-only forum.
  • COVID-19 Collaboration Platform
    This platform is a home for Randomized Clinical Trials (RCT) protocols that are available for collaboration. CovidCP publicizes protocols whose PI's are open to various levels of collaboration: joining forces with other research teams to create a core protocol; admitting new sites under the existing PI and IRB; sharing anonymized interim and/or final data through our partner Vivli with other sites that choose to independently operate a trial under a similar protocol. 

      for Everyone

      • COVID Accelerator
        Sponsored by several digital tech organizations, this is a community that brings together people and ideas with resources to move forward. Join doctors on the frontlines, engineers, scientists, storytellers, artists, and designers, all working toward a common goal. This is a non-UCSF initiative.
      • Join a COVID-19 Research Study
        UCSF researchers are leading a variety of clincal research studies to understand the COVID-19 disease: diagnostics, therapeutics, healthcare delivery, health disparities, social determinants, epidemiology, and vaccine development. 
      • Resource for Children During Pandemic 
        An innovative and free mental health resource developed as part of our SAMHSA grant. Fighting the Big Virus: Trinka, Sam, and Littletown Work Together is a story developed by Piplo Production and the National Child Traumatic Stress Network to help young children and families talk about their experiences and feelings related to COVID-19 and the need to stay inside. There is also a booklet of common questions children may ask, a parent guide, and a feeling poster. The book and booklet can either be read to children or, parents may select specific pages for their children to color and talk about. These all can all be downloaded for free.
