The Lesbian Health Research Center adds another dimension to the goals of the Institute for Health & Aging by serving women across the lifespan, and providing research data for making public policy decisions, improving public education, and facilitating community interventions. Specifically, our objectives are to:

  • Conduct research, education, training and public service, reflective of a broad vision of health and a strong commitment to community collaborations.

  • Engage in health research on lesbian, bisexual women, and transgender individuals using the research skills and experiences of reputable UCSF faculty, as well as other nationally recognized collaborators.

  • Serve as an ongoing forum for the research community and the lesbian, bisexual women, and transgender communities to participate in research.

  • Ensure that the results of the Center’s research are widely disseminated and used in a broad range of settings, from clinical care applications to policy implementation.
