Translating Discovery into Health
University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, & Development (UC BRAID) creates opportunities to improve health for Californians and beyond. Our platform for collaboration helps catalyze innovative ideas and build and leverage shared resources.
So long, silos! UC BRAID and our network of research administration experts across the University of California work to test and implement new ways of working together more efficiently. We break down barriers, making communication more effective, reducing impediments and redundancies, ultimately making it faster and easier for UC to conduct the next generation of research.
Contracting offices face increasing internal and external pressure to improve turnaround times for clinical trial contract execution. To address these challenges, UC BRAID convened a network of campus contracting leadership. More...
Participant recruitment is a significant challenge in many studies involving human subjects. The 5 campuses of UC BRAID, UC Riverside, and Stanford have partnered to build a portfolio of tools and services to improve the participant recruitment processes. More...
UC BRAID works closely with campus IRB Directors and staff as they adapt to a changing regulatory landscape. This close collaboration provides opportunities for us to test new approaches that streamline IRB approval and speed up clinical trial activation. More...
UC BRAID facilitated linking our clinical trial networks, for the first time giving our patients access to cutting edge therapies across the UC health systems through single IRB review and a simplified contracting process.

We are excited to showcase a diverse set of tools developed by our partners across the University of California. One example is a clinical trial finder that helps researchers, patients and physicians explore the broad portfolio of trials across the state. Another is a toolkit to assist UC investigators through the contracting process for investigator-initiated trials. Take a look and see what else is on offer.
