The Strategic Research Initiative aligns the University of Michigan Health System around a common research vision, backed by a long-term commitment of over $100 million by the Dean of the Medical School and implemented by the Office of Research.
- Leverage existing areas of research strength.
- Align interests and expertise, and invest in enabling infrastructure.
- Engage basic, translational, clinical, and health outcomes researchers.
Resulting in ground-breaking, innovative science, the Strategic Research Initiative will “fast forward” research at the U-M Health System and shape the future of human health and global healthcare policy.
