UCSF, Quest Partner To Develop New Diagnostic Tests
UC-San Francisco is partnering with Quest Diagnostics to develop new diagnostic tests related to the treatment of autism, neurology, oncology and women's health. The tests could include imaging technology, use of specific biomarkers or other genetic indicators of disease, and clinical and population research. As part of the initiative, Quest will award five to 10 individual grants of $50,000 to $500,000 to UCSF researchers annually.
