Explore some of the UCSF pioneering interdisciplinary research programs advancing women’s health knowledge in the domains of basic and translational science, clinical research and public policy.

Published Research

Clinicians and researchers at UCSF have published a comprehensive body of scientific literature. Publications are sorted by focus area and name of faculty member. 

Clinical Trials

A clinical trial is a research study involving human participants which is designed to scientifically answer specific questions about a particular treatment strategy for a health condition. It is one of the final stages of a long and careful research process to test the safety and efficacy of promising approaches to disease prevention, diagnosis and treatments, both medical and surgical.

It is important to have both women and men in a clinical trial in appropriate numbers to know whether the results of the trial apply to both men and women.
