Bolster the next great breakthroughs in health care
Every day, we learn new things about our health: the vast intricacies of the human body, the environmental factors that affect our well-being, and the unforeseen issues that affect vast swaths of the population. At UC Davis, these discoveries propel us to create new technologies and procedures. To rethink how we diagnose, treat and prevent the most complex medical conditions. To develop game-changing interventions that alter the ways we think about wellness, at every stage of life and in every corner of the globe. Now, we have the opportunity to make sure people don’t just live longer—but lead even greater lives.
Telemedicine Virtual Hospital
Addressing urgent challenges with inventive approaches
When in-person medical visits aren’t ideal, patients need a safe, convenient way for a doctor to assess their condition accurately and get them on the path to better health. For more than 20 years, the UC Davis Center for Health and Technology’s telemedicine program has provided real-time consultations, in nearly 50 specialties, to more than 200 clinics and hospitals, often in California’s rural areas. Now, UC Davis Health is creating a digital platform and virtual hospital that expands access to our exceptional care.
Veterinary Medical Center
Imagine a comprehensive center for veterinary medicine unlike any in the world: one that sets the gold standard of care while defining the state of the art clinical research and education. Combining our extensive knowledge in animal and human health, this center brings experts from all disciplines to solve today’s most urgent challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic. We’ve become the hub of research, testing and treatments to ensure a safer, more resilient world for all.
Healthy Brain Aging Initiative
Advancing brain science for an aging population
The loss of brain health commonly associated with aging can be devastating to patients and their families. The UC Davis Healthy Brain Aging Initiative will advance novel approaches to optimize brain health from birth, giving everyone a chance to have a healthy mind.
Veterinary Medicine Research
Preventing the next pandemic
Bringing together experts in animal, human and environmental health, UC Davis has a vision to accelerate how quickly we can predict and respond to outbreaks. Our researchers at the School of Veterinary Medicine have identified multiple Ebola species in bats before any potential spread—a breakthrough with major implications for prevention. Now, as part of the USAID-funded PREDICT Project, the school’s One Health Institute leads a multi-institutional effort in over 30 countries, working to stop global health crises before they start.
Ernest E. Tschannen Eye Institute
Developing transformative cures and therapies for eye diseases
The UC Davis Eye Center is setting the standard for compassionate patient care, for the training of world-class ophthalmologists and vision scientists, and for research that changes lives. We’ve already started construction of the new Ernest E. Tschannen Eye Institute, a state-of-the-art facility where this critical work will continue. When the building is complete, we can accelerate our vital research and the development of life-changing cures for eye diseases that impact millions—enhancing quality of life for patients regionally, nationally and globally.
A healthier society begins with a stronger UC Davis
The foresight to face unprecedented challenges
In the field of medicine, there is so much uncharted terrain. Every day, we learn new things about the human body and the things that affect it. As a preeminent leader in medical care and research, UC Davis has a duty to continue to look forward, navigating this brave new future with the knowledge, skill, expertise and innovation it requires.
The ingenuity to create unconventional solutions
Whether it’s new cures or clinical breakthroughs that help us diagnose, treat and prevent the most complex medical conditions, our nationally ranked medical school, hospital and research institution uniquely position us to change the way we approach medical care for good.
The potential to realize extraordinary progress
It’s not enough to simply meet the needs of today. To make true progress, we need to look far into the future. As we become better able to anticipate tomorrow’s challenges, we can not only meet issues as they arise, but bring about a bold new reality with more knowledge, deeper understanding and better treatments for people everywhere.
As we look forward, we look to you
UC Davis is vital to the field of medicine. Your support will allow us to push beyond the conventional, leading the way in care that is creative and effective, purposeful and powerful.
