Omics Career Development Program

UCSF is one of the world's leading health sciences campuses. The Omics Career Development builds on the existing strengths in pulmonary research, omics, and education and training here at UCSF.

The goal of this program is to launch the careers of an outstanding group of new M.D. and Ph.D. faculty for careers built around using state of the art omics approaches (including genomics, genetics, proteomics, and metabolomics) to understand the causes of lung diseases and identify novel ways to prevent, diagnose and treat these diseases. The program is now in its final year. One additional scholars will receive one year of salary support (up to $100,000 per year) to pursue multidisciplinary research with training and mentoring. The program also provides $11,500 per Scholar per year for research, tuition, and travel; a structured mentoring program; access to program faculty with expertise in omics, lung disease, and related disciplines; and access to relevant courses and seminars.
