Research & Policy
The Philip R. Lee Institute for Health Policy Studies is pushing the traditional boundaries of research.
Our interdisciplinary experts collect evidence, inform policy, improve practice, and transform healthcare in America through their groundbreaking work in health policy.
We believe that all people have the right to be healthy and as a society, we have the ability to ensure the health of everyone. We provide the evidence base to inform the best policy pathway. Our unbiased, comprehensive research leads to smarter, more effective policy and leads to healthier people.
An unabashed and dogged pursuit of the truth drives IHPS researchers and is what bonds us to our colleagues throughout the UCSF community.
Society’s health challenges are complex and systemic. Our work broadly falls into these cross-disciplinary focus areas.
