University of California San Francisco

Many of the projects and people focused on Global Maternal, Newborn, and Child Health research are part of the Institute for Global Health Sciences and the Bixby Center for Reproductive Health.

UCSF funds research projects through its Resource Allocation Program (RAP), a campus-wide program whose aim is to coordinate intramural research funding opportunities for the UCSF campus and its affiliates while allowing funding agencies to maintain full autonomy over their funding mechanisms and awardees. The program manages the dissemination, submission, review and award of various intramural funding opportunities.  Several of the projects included on are funded through this program.
