The UC Biomedical Research Acceleration, Integration, and Development (BRAID) Network is a consortium of the five UC medical campuses and hubs at UC Irvine, UC Davis, UC San Francisco, UC San Diego, and UC Los Angeles in collaboration with the UC Office of the President. Formed in 2010, the UC BRAID consortium aims to accelerate research and improve health through collaboration, sharing resources, and infrastructure development. The UC BRAID program is an effort to accelerate clinical and translational research that improves health, by integrating resources and talent across the University of California. UC BRAID bridges disciplinary and institutional boundaries to create collaborative teams focused on the greatest opportunities as well as the greatest needs throughout the state. The mission of UC BRAID is to create an environment that reduces barriers, leverages and combines resources, enables teams, and serves as a model for collaborative consortia. UC BRAID’s main priorities are to create infrastructure and drive harmonization to increase efficiency in clinical and translational research through initiatives and workgroups and to develop structures to support the interface between research and clinical care.
