Endowment for Basic Sciences

Strengthening basic science research and education at the University of Michigan

The Endowment for Basic Science (EBS) is a cooperative program developed by former Medical School Dean, Allen Lichter, and the Chairs and Directors of the nine participating units. Together, we work for the advancement of research and teaching in the Medical School Basic Sciences through the development of new research initiatives, and recruitment of new faculty.



The Endowment for Basic Science - Goals

  1. Increase opportunities for the participating units to develop scientific interactions between themselves and with other University units.
  2. Improve the opportunities for the participating units to recruit outstanding faculty in support of programmatic themes and important departmental goals.
  3. Improve the participating units' ability to develop and compete for interdisciplinary research involving multi-unit participation and external funding.
  4. Participate with the Medical School Office of the Dean in support of new initiatives and programs.
