RAP is a campus-wide program that manages the dissemination, submission, review and award of various intramural funding opportunities. The seed-funding grants are offered twice per year: in the Spring (online application submission begins in January) and in the Fall (online application submission begins in August) .

The LSP is responsible for the management of extramural funding opportunities that limit the number of applications UCSF may put forward to a given sponsor or require some other kind of internal coordination (e.g., to eliminate unnecessary duplication of instrument requests).
The TSP fosters and supports team science efforts across campus and between our campus and other partners. The program offers a variety of services aimed at stimulating multi-investigator, multi-disciplinary efforts, from producing team-building events to supporting administrative needs of new teams.

A "large grant" is one for which the allowable budget exceeds $1M per year in direct costs or the research involves multiple investigators and scientific/administrative components. LGDP staff support every step of the proposal process for large grants, including early-stage scientific discussions, timeline development, the collection and writing of common institutional language, late-stage technical editing, and proofreading.
SSPs involve facilitating cross-institutional research collaborations or donor proposal development, as well as supporting campus-wide initiatives such as our Precision Medicine Initiative. This program also includes outreach activities with other research development and research administration partners within UCSF, UC and across the nation.
The 3TS program supports faculty and staff in actively preparing for T32 grant renewals by helping to prepare the required data tables, as well as by uploading current and historical program data into NIH xTract.
