The time allotted to pursue research opportunities depends on that fellow’s training sequence. AMBG limits fellows to 6 months of research during a two year fellowship, but the length of the fellowship may be extended to accommodate additional time in research.
At UCSF, there is a rich and diverse environment in both the basic and medical sciences, with a large number of clinicians and investigators working in multiple disciplines related to human and medical genetics.
Faculty members conducting research in genetics are from multiple schools, departments and centers at UCSF, including the Schools of Medicine, Dentistry, and Pharmacy. Primary appointments are in clinical departments such as Dermatology, Laboratory Medicine, Medicine, Neurology, Otolaryngology, Ob-Gyn, Pathology, and Pediatrics; basic science departments such as the Department of Biopharmaceutical Sciences, and the Department of Biochemistry and Biophysics; graduate programs such as the Biomedical Sciences Program and the Tetrad Graduate Program, and interdepartmental institutes such as the Institute for Human Genetics, the Institute for Regeneration Medicine, the Cancer Research Institute, the Cardiovascular Research Institute, and the Gladstone Institute.
Most of our faculty in genetics are affiliated with, and have faculty appointments in, the Institute for Human Genetics, whose web site provides an extensive interdepartmental list of faculty members and research programs in human and medical genetics throughout UCSF.
