PTBi-CA Funded Awards in Prematurity Research

Applications for the Fall 2017 cycle are currently under review, with award notifications scheduled for the end of December. The next application cycle will open January 29, 2018.


PTBi-CA provides direct funding for innovative, high-impact research with strong potential to turn the curve on preterm birth and reduce birth outcome disparities in the city of Oakland and counties of San Francisco and Fresno. Since 2016, we have distributed over $2 million in awards for more than 20 discovery and interventions research projects.

Requests for proposals are issued twice yearly through UCSF’s Resource Allocation Program (RAP), available to researchers at UCSF, its partner institutions, and community-based investigators. Grant opportunities may be broad or targeted, depending upon our current research portfolio.

All applications are reviewed by the PTBi-CA leadership team, the PTBi-CA Community Advisory Board, and a scientific review committee convened by RAP.
