Twice a year, in the spring and fall, we request research proposals via the UCSF Resource Allocation Program (RAP). The spring RAP applications are due by March 1st.
What We're Looking For
We are looking for proposals focused on:

We are particularly interested in topics prioritized by our communities in San Francisco, Oakland and Fresno.
