Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE)

Research in Implementation Science for Equity (RISE) is an all-expenses-paid training opportunity for junior faculty who are underrepresented in the biomedical sciences. RISE is designed to train competitive scientists and enhance the diversity of the biomedical research workforce. The program involves a two-week RISE Summer Institute, focused on implementation science and career mentoring, which is hosted by UCSF’s Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics in partnership with the Center for Vulnerable Populations in July in San Francisco. RISE Scholars also complete a second institute the following summer.

RISE is a part of the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute’s Program to Increase Diversity among Individuals Engaged in Health-Related Research (NHLBI-PRIDE). It is funded through an NHLBI grant R25HL126146.
