Weill Clinician-Scientist Awards

At the center of the UCSF Weill Institute’s mission is a desire to improve the lives of patients suffering from disorders of the nervous system and a commitment to translating discoveries made at the bench into therapies that can make an impact at the bedside.

Clinician-scientists play an essential role in bridging bench and bedside, though due to the extra demands and complexity of their training, this career path has become increasingly difficult to pursue. In response, the UCSF Weill Institute established the Clinician-Scientist Awards in 2021 to annually provide early-career support and mentoring for outstanding clinicians who have also shown extraordinary potential for careers in brain disease research.
