Funding to administer individual UCSF graduate programs comes primarily from those UCSF departments involved with each program and is calculated based on a standardized funding model. Program funds also come from essential training grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Administration of the Biophysics Graduate Program benefits from the following NIH training grants:
- National Institute of General Medical Sciences (NIGMS) of the National Institutes of Health Structural Biology Training Grant
- National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) of the National Institutes of Health Complex Biological Systems Training Grant
Student funding comes from a variety of sources.
