In 2006, UC Davis received a $24.8 million Clinical and Translational Science Award from the NIH and established the UC Davis Clinical and Translational Science Center (CTSC).

Residents have opportunities to work with faculty on research ranging from stem cell research in the laboratory, clinical and translational research, and health services research.

Residents have been mentored by faculty to successfully obtain grants, present regionally and nationally, and publish their work.  All residents present their scholarly project abstract and poster at our annual UC Davis Pediatric Research Symposium.

More information about our faculty members' research interests is available from our list of department Research and Publishing activities.
