The University of California, San Diego (UCSD) provides a wide range of research opportunities available to fellows. Each fellow has a faculty advisor, a research mentor and a scholarly oversight committee to advise and oversee the fellow's development into a scientific investigator.
Fellows can develop their research interests in basic science and translational science in the laboratories at:
University of California, San Diego
UCSD-Moores Cancer Center
La Jolla Institute for Allergy and Immunology (LJI)
Sanford-Burnham-Prebys Medical Research Institute
Scripps Research Institute
Fellows interested in developing a clinical research project are able to be part of UCSD's
Clinical Research Enhancement through Supplemental Training (CREST) Program. Through this program the fellow gains the knowledge needed to conduct clinical research and identifies a research mentor with experience in guiding trainees to a successful career in clinical research.
