UC BRAID Consortium

UC BRAID, or University of California Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, and Development, is a network of five UC campuses - Davis, Irvine, Los Angeles, San Diego and San Francisco. Formed in 2010, the UC BRAID consortium aims to accelerate research and improve health through collaboration, sharing resources, and infrastructure development. We connect researchers and administrators to solve problems, increase opportunities, and create efficiency of scale. Our platform of shared governance acts as a catalyst for collaboration, enabling us to amplify individual work and multiply its impact.

UC BRAID bridges disciplinary and institutional boundaries to create collaborative teams focused on the greatest opportunities as well as the greatest needs throughout the UC system. The mission of UC BRAID is to create an environment that reduces barriers, leverages and combines resources, enables teams, and serves as a model for collaborative consortia.
