The Tsinghua Scholars Program is a joint effort between the Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences and the Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry at the University of California, San Francisco (UCSF), and the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences at Tsinghua University. The goal of this program is to enhance the education and research activities of students and faculty members at both institutions through the establishment of collaborative research projects between laboratories and through a student exchange program in which Tsinghua graduate students from the School of Pharmaceutical Sciences can conduct research in the laboratory of a UCSF faculty member.
