U-M Medical School faculty are engaged in meaningful research with collaborators around the world. In 2018-19, more than 100 Global REACH Faculty Associates (from the medical school) and Faculty Affiliates (from other health science disciplines) published 337 papers with foreign co-authors. While some of the foreign co-authors are at institutions in high-resource countries, many others are from comparatively low-resource settings, including Global REACH Platform countries like China, India, and Brazil.
Faculty Research Services
Faculty Associate/Affiliate Network - Our Global REACH network of Faculty Associates (medical school) and Affiliates (non-med school) boasts more than 200 colleagues from nearly every UMMS department and discipline as well as a number of colleagues from other U-M health science schools. It is a good resource for learning which faculty at U-M are active in global health and where they are engaged.
Partnership Development Grants - The cost of travel can present a barrier to international collaboration, particularly in the critical early stages of a partnership. Global REACH Partnership Development Grants provide travel funds to faculty to help them develop new collaborative relationships with colleagues at international institutions.
Global Health Research Certificate Program - Our Global REACH-developed yearlong training program intended to help faculty, fellows and residents incorporate global health into their research portfolios, creating a foundation for meaningful collaborative relationships and research in the global health setting.
