UCSF Research Collaboration

Research collaboration at the Osher Center is limited to UCSF researchers. If you are a UCSF researcher and would like to know more about conducting research at the Osher Center, including use of space, please complete our Clinical Research Application Form.

Applications must be submitted at least 45 days prior to the Contract and Grants submission deadline. Requests for peer reviews should be made at least 60 days prior to deadline.

Initial Submissions

Steps in the Application Process:

  • Notify Rick Hecht, Director of Research, of your intention and submit a proposal and abstract of proposed research.
  • Complete the Application Form, and e-mail it to Patty Moran, PhD.
  • If you are interested in receiving a peer review, let Patty Moran know when you submit your proposal. If scheduled well in advance, a peer review can be a valuable resource, providing the Principal Investigator with constructive criticism and valuable recommendations for study design, analysis, as well as general grantsmanship. Our peer review team consists of faculty and staff affiliated with the Osher Center.
  • Contact Angela Sutkaitis, Director of Finance and Administration, to discuss grant deadline and budgeting information.
  • Patty Moran will monitor progress of each application and contact you if additional information is required. Once your application review is complete, you will receive a confirmation e-mail from her.

Please notify Patty Moran as soon as you are aware of the status of the grant (i.e., whether it was awarded or not; and if not, if and when the proposal will be resubmitted.) Once funded, update and resubmit the Osher Center application to Patty Moran.


If you are planning to resubmit a grant application, please update and resubmit your Osher Center application at least 45 days in advance of the submission deadline.

  • Update and resubmit the Osher application with any changes to study design that affect Osher resource needs (e.g. a change in the number of study participants or visits) to Patty Moran.
  • Contact Angela Sutkaitis, Director of Finance and Administration, to discuss grant deadline and budgeting information, as costs and fees may have increased since the initial submission.
