Jonathan Fuchs, MD, MPH, is the Director of the Center for Learning and Innovation at the San Francisco Department of Public Health, and an Associate Clinical Professor of Medicine at UCSF. Over the past 14 years, Dr. Fuchs’s research interests have focused on biomedical and behavioral HIV prevention and the development of novel mentored research programs to engage early-career investigators in clinical translational research, particularly those from underrepresented backgrounds in science. He is Co-Director of the Andy Choi Mentoring Program of the UCSF Center for AIDS Research (CFAR). He is also Director of the Preterm Birth Initiative (PTBi) at UCSF. PTBi provides leadership to the New Minds, New Ideas initiative, which seeks to attract and retain academia- and community-based researchers who are dedicated to reducing the global burden of prematurity-related morbidity and mortality. During the PTBi planning phase, Dr. Fuchs served on the Northern California Collective Impact readiness assessment working group.
