Li Foundation Funds Chinese Scholars to Study Systems Biology at UCSF

The New York-based Li Foundation, which for more than 15 years has been supporting Chinese scientists to study at UCSF, is now targeting its support to scholars from Peking University's Center for Theoretical Biology to study at the University of California's (UC's) California Institute for Quantitative Biomedical Research (QB3), which is headquartered at UCSF.

Systems Biology Doctoral Program Funded

UCSF is the recipient of a US$1 million, 3-year grant from the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI) to create a new and radical PhD program to train systems biologists.

Systems Biology Center Connects UC and Peking University

A research collaboration between the University of California (UC) and Peking University will integrate the biological data acquisition strengths of the former with the physical and theoretical strengths of the latter, a move which scientists anticipate will ultimately lead to more effective, safer medications for populations and individuals.
