The Michigan Institute for Clinical & Health Research (MICHR) promotes and enables clinical and translational research across the University of Michigan and beyond by educating, funding, connecting and supporting research teams. As the recipient of a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), MICHR is part of a national consortium of about 50 academic research institutions funded by the CTSA program who strive to accelerate discoveries toward better health.
Since its inception in 2006, MICHR has funded a broad range of diverse and innovative translational research projects through various pilot grant mechanisms. Our investment of $23M in pilot grants to almost 500 investigators has resulted in $217M in extramural funding and more than 400 publications. One of the long-standing goals of our Pilot Grant Program has been to support collaborative research activity. As such, we are delighted to partner with Mcubed to support teams of interdisciplinary researchers who aim to tackle significant problems in translational research.
