Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR) - U-award
The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) is a catalytic hub that significantly impacts the translation of investigative science into innovative improvements in clinical care and health policy. Our objective is to empower researchers and research communities within and outside the University of Michigan (U-M), creating a positive impact on health across local, regional, national, and global scales. We will achieve this objective through the following overarching specific aims: 1) Innovate and implement effective educational approaches to develop a skilled and diverse translational research workforce; 2) Catalyze effective research with community partnerships to accelerate the translation of breakthroughs that benefit society; 3) Strengthen research across the translational spectrum and the lifespan; 4) Advance the science of translational research through experimental innovations that we hypothesize will enable higher quality and more efficient research methods and processes 5) Develop, demonstrate, and disseminate enabling technologies that facilitate the translation of biomedical discoveries to health impact. MICHR aspires to have a unique, substantial, measurable, and recognizable impact on U-M and the health of our communities. In order to achieve this with efficiency, we have critically evaluated pre-existing strengths and emerging opportunities across the institutional research landscape. MICHR will enhance and develop partnerships with major research and regulatory units on campus to develop an efficient pipeline that accelerates the translation and implementation of discoveries while also promoting cross-cutting signature initiatives that engage research and community members from all phases of translation.
