SF Coordinating Center
The San Francisco Coordinating Center (SFCC)—a collaborative enterprise among researchers from the CPMC Research Institute and the UCSF School of Medicine, Department of Epidemiology and Biostatistics—specializes in multi-center studies in aging/longevity, breast cancer prevention, cardiovascular disease, cognitive function/dementia, endocrine disorders, insomnia/sleep disorders, genetics, neonatology, osteoarthritis, osteoporosis, and research methods in biostatistics and study design.
The SFCC combines scientific expertise in these areas with broad experience in managing multi-center studies, and offers access to a network of high-quality, experienced clinical centers. These centers have a proven track record in recruitment and quality data collection to implement successful follow-up activities.
Studies at the SFCC are known for high rates of recruitment, reference, and publication. At the core of the Coordinating Center is a team with more than two decades of experience and innovation in clinical research and clinical trials. A non-profit, academic center, the SFCC works selectively with industry and NIH to develop and conduct studies that have a critical impact on clinical research and public health.
