Support for new and junior faculty who achieved independent status, preliminary research using human subjects, tissue, or clinical data to address questions related to disease pathogenesis, diagnosis, or management.
- Catalyst Award for the Development of Diagnostics, Therapeutics, Devices and Digital Health
Funding for early development of diagnostics and therapeutics. It provides extensive consultation and pilot funds.
- Multi-Disciplinary Planning Grant
Support for the development of large-scale multidisciplinary, multicenter clinical/translational research projects that typically require substantial funding at levels provided by, for example, the R01 or P01 mechanisms through the NIH.
- NEW Team Science Grant
The goal of this award is to stimulate new collaborations of UCSF scientists from diverse fields, including social, basic, and clinical research, which address clinical and translational research questions that require an innovative, multidisciplinary approach. This award will provide funding to develop complex cross-disciplinary research projects, including arranging meetings of investigators, performing preliminary studies and preparing grant applications. In addition, we encourage teams that are diverse based on gender, ethnicity, race and other characteristics.
Career Development Awards
- Under-Represented Faculty & Senior Fellows in Clinical and Translational Research Awards
These awards aim to encourage fellows and junior faculty from economically or educationally disadvantaged backgrounds to remain in academia.

Awards for women clinical and translational research faculty who are returning to work after childbearing leave and to relieve them of non-research responsibilities for up to 3 months after maternity leave.
