Celebrating ten years of shared infrastructure and programs that accelerate research and improve health, UC BRAID convened its annual meeting on October 14-15, 2019 at the UCLA Luskin Conference Center. UC BRAID, the University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, & Development, is a consortium of the five UC academic medical centers—Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco.


The University of California has been a driving force for biomedical discovery in the state, nation, and world. The UC academic medical centers continue to address the challenge of accelerating the translation of basic and applied research to new therapies and policies that truly impact health throughout California. This year’s Retreat theme: “One California: Integrating Research into Health Care” was designed to identify specific milestones, metrics, and approaches to expand the reach of UC system biomedical research, to share updates on UC BRAID’s  priority initiatives and discuss future directions. The Retreat was attended by a wide-ranging set of leaders, faculty, and administrators from UC campuses and the Office of the President.
