GBHI’s two founding sites, UCSF and Trinity, have formed a strong partnership based on shared values and vision. This values-based approach is what makes the collaboration successful—guiding each organization and unifying not only our goals but how we achieve them.
We are two sites informed by a common approach and program structure, but enriched by the unique aspects and expertise of each site and their wider ecosystem of collaborators, communities and partners.
Both UCSF and Trinity emerge from an outstanding foundation of basic and clinical neuroscience, aging, and dementia with a clear emphasis that science must make a difference to society. This foundation not only serves to ground our training in a way that ensures propagation of findings that are evidence-based but also allows a platform for new discoveries to be implemented at all stages of evaluation, including scalable interventions.
The faculty of GBHI is composed of interdisciplinary experts from UCSF and Trinity in the fields of neurodegeneration, mental health, aging, dementia prevention, brain health, health economics, policy, technology, and more. With leading expertise and global networks, the GBHI faculty can fully immerse Atlantic Fellows in a dynamic learning environment with unique opportunities for professional collaboration and growth. Augmenting this faculty expertise is a local ecosystem of partners and collaborators which allows the creation of unique formal and informal learning experiences at each site.
While grounded in excellence in biomedical science at both institutions, GBHI values the role of the arts and humanities, and seeks to build partnerships to enhance this aspect of our fellowship.
