Our Impact

Even modest grants can reap rich rewards when every funded project has the potential to transform global health. PBBR comprises just 0.5 percent of UCSF’s overall research budget, but its projects have had an outsized impact, generating more than $1 billion in follow-on funding. This work has also led to over 2,250 scientific publications, 60 patents, $200 million in indirect cost recovery, and some 300 awards from the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
