About

Sackler Center

The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Center for Biomedical, Physical and Engineering Sciences promotes the convergence of the life, physical and engineering sciences to foster the innovations necessary for meeting the health care challenges of the future.

The interface between biological, physical sciences and engineering is rapidly opening new frontiers in biomedical research. To advance this fertile research area, the Center supports two endowed chairs at UC Berkeley and promotes innovation and faculty collaboration between UC Berkeley and UCSF by facilitating a prestigious sabbatical exchange program.

The Raymond and Beverly Sackler Center for Biomedical, Physical and Engineering Sciences was established in spring 2012 with the generous support from Raymond and Beverly Sackler.
