Department faculty are engaged in a broad variety of clinical research, epidemiologic studies and methodologic activities that we have described in 11 categories of Areas of Concentration (AoC).  Each AoC lists the DEB primary faculty and affiliated faculty with links to their personal UCSF Profile or other descriptive sites. In addition to the many projects that are led by departmental faculty, a unique feature of our department is the emphasis given to interdisciplinary collaboration, carrying our expertise in research methods and analysis to other departments and institutions.
