This spring, UCSF’s Basic Needs and Food Security team continues to spread the word about a range of new services for students. At a series of Resource Fairs at Parnassus and Mission Bay campuses, they invite all UCSF students to drop in for a bite to eat plus a few sound bites about available resources.
In the spring of 2017, the Associated Students of the Graduate Division (ASGD), in collaboration with Graduate Division staff, developed and administered a survey to gather data about PhD students’ perspectives about their mentors.
Yiqi Cao, a bioengineering graduate student in the lab of Tejal Desai, PhD, professor and chair of bioengineering and therapeutic sciences, won the top prize of $3,000 as well as the people's choice award in the fourth annual UCSF Grad Slam competition. Inez Raharjo, also a graduate student in the Bioengineering PhD program, was named runner-up.
The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has announced the 2018 Harold M. Weintraub Graduate Student Award recipients. Among them are three PhD candidates at UC San Francisco — Eric Dang, Kamena Kostova, and Adam Larson.
Nominations for the prestigious award are solicited internationally. In all, 13 Weintraub Award recipients were named, representing 10 top research-intensive universities, including Harvard, MIT, Scripps, and Stanford. Only UCSF has three Weintraub awardees this year.
