UCSF Academic Senate Faculty Research Lectures
2022-2023 Call for Nominations

The Academic Senate Committee on Research is accepting nominations for the 2022-2023 Faculty Research Lectures. The deadline to submit a nomination is June 10, 2022. Submit nominations via the Senate Service Portal (SSP) here. Please do not submit nomination packets via email.

Each year, this award acknowledges the outstanding scientific achievements made by members of the UCSF Academic Senate in three areas:

  1. Clinical and Population Sciences
  2. Basic Science
  3. Translational Science

In the Clinical and Population Sciences category, the Academic Senate acknowledges and awards researchers from clinical fields, social and behavioral sciences, and policy-related fields of research. The latter two areas include, but are not limited to, sociology of health and illness, social inequalities in health/health disparities, tobacco control policy, aging and aging health policy, and global health.

The Translational Science category includes research that translates findings from the laboratory, clinic, or community to develop or scale-up interventions that improve clinical care or public health.

Nominators are asked to state the best-fitting category for the candidate’s research within the cover page of the application. 

Academic Senate members are asked to consider the contributions of their colleagues so that their outstanding scientific achievements may be recognized by the University community. The Academic Senate Committee on Research selects the recipients of each lectureship award.

The Committee on Research welcomes nominations of faculty from historically excluded groups and those underrepresented in medicine and science.


Submit one PDF document containing the following:

  • A cover page containing the nominee’s name, degree(s), title, department(s), and school affiliations(s) and the FRL award category (Clinical and Population Sciences, Basic Science, or Translational Science) that best fits the nominee's research.
  • A one-page letter summarizing the most outstanding achievements of the nominee’s scientific career (this cover letter does not count as one of the faculty letters of support);
  • A current curriculum vitae; and
  • Two letters of support from individual UCSF faculty only (one of the letters may be from the faculty member submitting the nomination).

Please note:

  • The nominator (or one of the authors of a letter of support) must be available to meet with the Committee on Research for a 5-minute discussion about the nomination at its meeting on Monday, June 27, 2022 (3-5pm) via Zoom.
  • If a nominee is selected for the award, the information in the nominee’s packet, including the letters, may be used in the creation of materials promoting the event.

Nominations should be submitted via the Senate Service Portal here.

Previously submitted nomination packets will be reconsidered as is if the nominator verifies that those providing letters of support still agree to do so.

Please contact Liz Greenwood (liz.greenwood@ucsf.edu) with questions.
