UCSF will “Stand Up for Science” in solidarity with other members of the academic and scientific communities with a teach-in and rally on the morning of Saturday, April 22.
Teach-In (8-10 a.m.)
The "Stand Up For Science" teach-in will feature UCSF faculty members who, during their careers, have pursued research that has clashed with political sentiments. Listen to stories from those experienced in advancing evidence-based health policy when politics interfered or presented seemingly immovable obstacles. Breakfast will be available at 8 a.m., with the program starting at 8:30 a.m.
The panel, moderated by Mike McCune, MD, PhD, will include:
Rally (10-10:45 a.m.)
Immediately after the teach-in, join members of the Bay Area life sciences community at a rally to stand up for science. This is an opportunity to speak out for robust funding of research and our shared values of diversity and inclusion in advancing scientific discovery.
The “Stand Up for Science” rally — which UCSF is hosting in partnership with the California Life Sciences Association and Gladstone Institutes — will feature comments from leaders in the health sciences on the fundamental importance of a vibrant scientific enterprise to America and the world.
At the rally, you’ll have an opportunity to take part in a science advocacy effort by filling out postcards that will be hand-delivered to your local Congressional representative in Washington D.C.
The first 500 attendees of the rally will also receive a “Stand Up For Science” t-shirt.
