SF BUILD (Building Infrastructure Leading to Diversity) is a project funded by a grant from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for Enhancing the Diversity of the NIH-funded Workforce program. SF BUILD is led by San Francisco State University in partnership with University of California, San Francisco (UCSF).

The Mission of SF BUILD is to enhance diversity of the biomedical research workforce by transforming the teaching and research environments at SF State and UCSF. 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


The Diversity Program Consortium Coordination and Evaluation Center at UCLA is supported by Office of the Director of the National Institutes of Health / National Institutes of General Medical Sciences under award number U54GM119024.
