SOS Center Accepting Inaugural Proposals
The Strategic Opportunities Support Center (SOS Center) at UCSF is accepting inaugural proposals for projects that will carry forward the translation of research studies into clinical and human studies and eventually into community practice. The SOS Center is co-directed by UCSF faculty members Kathy M. Giacomini, PhD, and Paul Volberding, MD, from the School of Pharmacy and the School of Medicine, respectively. It is part of the larger UCSF Clinical and Translational Science Institute (CTSI) that was funded by the National Institutes of Health in 2006 to coordinate research and education in clinical and translational science at UCSF, at affiliated institutions, and in participating communities.
About the School: The UCSF School of Pharmacy is a premier graduate-level academic organization dedicated to improving health through precise therapeutics. It succeeds through innovative research, by educating PharmD health professional and PhD science students, and by caring for the therapeutics needs of patients while exploring innovative new models of patient care. The School was founded in 1872 as the first pharmacy school in the American West. It is an integral part of UC San Francisco, a leading university dedicated to promoting health worldwide.
