In September 2020, UC Biomedical Research Acceleration, Innovation and Development (UC BRAID) launched the Addressing Health Equity in COVID Research initiative which provided $100K in support to each of the 5 UC Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) campuses to enhance existing research projects and enable increased inclusion. The initiative was a mechanism to immediately provide support to existing project (e.g. clinical trials, social/behavioral, and community engagement research) and address the intersecting challenges of COVID-19 and health disparity.
