The CZ Biohub Investigator Program is funding research by world-renowned scientists, engineers, and technologists from UC Berkeley, Stanford University, and UCSF. This funding is unrestricted, giving these extraordinary Investigators the freedom to pursue their most exciting, visionary ideas. Many of these bold, innovative projects involve the invention of new tools and techniques that accelerate the pace of scientific discovery and help CZ Biohub realize its vision of curing, preventing, or managing every disease by the end of the century.
As part of CZ Biohub’s effort to build its cross-disciplinary scientific community, we have announced the new cohort of Investigators. These Investigators will begin their awards on March 1, 2022. Learn more about the Investigator Competition 2021.
We’re also pleased to welcome 10 new university-nominated investigators, recently appointed to faculty positions by our partners – Stanford, UC San Francisco, and UC Berkeley. As with all Investigators in the CZ Biohub Investigator Program, these university-nominated scientists will each receive $1 million in unrestricted funds over five years, and will have the opportunity to collaborate with, learn from, and inspire their fellow Investigators.
The Intercampus Research Awards have supported cutting-edge research for collaborative, multi-institution teams. Each cross-disciplinary team includes talented faculty members from our three partner universities of UCSF, UC Berkeley, and Stanford University. By working together, these talented investigators have developed new technologies and advance our understanding of some of the most demanding challenges in biomedical research.
