With an emphasis on collaboration, we're building a portfolio of pandemic recovery and readiness research

CPR3 is funded by, and works in partnership with, the California Department of Public Health (CDPH)

In alignment with California’s 2022 SMARTER Plan, CPR3 focuses on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the impact of different public health, economic, financial, and social interventions and policies that comprised the state’s response and recovery measures.

CPR3 objectives include:

  1. Prioritizing and funding pandemic recovery and readiness research. CPR3 core activities include defining research priority areas, crafting requests for proposals (RFPs), reviewing proposal applications, and funding research projects that best align to the CPR3 Mission and Principles. 
  2. Generating evidence to inform policies and improve the lives of California residents. Results from the CPR3 program will inform future public health investments and policy-making, and findings from studies will help in the development of a “blueprint” for California pandemic recovery and readiness.
  3. Establishing an agile research infrastructure to conduct policy-relevant research. Through CPR3, UCSF and CDPH are furthering their commitment to improving the health and wellbeing of Californians. This requires a long-term plan to sustain policy-focused research throughout the University of California system.
