$58M grant to help U. of Michigan develop research, health care ideas

November 6, 2017

The University of Michigan has received a $58 million grant to help new ideas in ­research and health care move forward, with Michigan residents of all ages and backgrounds as partners, according to a news release from the university.

The grant is from the National Institutes of Health's National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences through its Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program.

It provides for an up to five-year new dose of funding for the Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research, or MICHR, contingent on the availability of future U.S. congressional appropriations. More than
50 other universities nationwide, including UGA, are supported through the Clinical and Translational Science Awards Program.

The institute helps University of Michigan health and life science researchers turn their best ideas and discoveries into tests, treatments, care ­innovations and cures through training, ­funding and central research services. It also gives community members, including patients, the ability to help shape research priorities.
