Who are the SF BUILD Scholars?

SF BUILD gives San Francisco State University students interested in biomedical research* the opportunity to become a San Francisco (SF) BUILD (Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity) scholar. We believe that everyone "brings something to the table" from their personal experiences that can be used to benefit and strengthen our communities. In partnership with UC San Francisco (UCSF), SF BUILD scholars investigate biomedical research questions that are of interest to them and relevant to local communities.  

Through a variety of activities, SF BUILD scholars receive support to integrate personal strengths, develop strong research skills, and pursue academic and professional goals.
