SF BUILD BUILDing Bridges Program

Our Mission



To enhance diversity of the biomedical research workforce by transforming the teaching and research environments at SF State. We create engaging and supportive spaces where students and faculty can safely represent different backgrounds and perspectives. Additionally, in partnership with UCSF, students and faculty receive training and mentoring to make significant contributions to biomedical research by asking innovative questions that are relevant to local communities.




Remembering Shane Colombo,

beloved member of the SF BUILD community.
