The Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research creates partnerships among the relevant units of the university, NIH, external industry partners and the community. The overwhelming majority of University of Michigan (UM) schools, colleges and institutes are participating, including: the top-ranked Schools of Business, Dentistry, Medicine, Nursing, Social Work and Public Health; the Colleges of Engineering, Pharmacy, Literature, and Science and Arts; the Division of Kinesiology; the Institute of Social Research; and the Life Sciences Institute. The university-owned Health System, which includes integrated outpatient and inpatient facilities, is contributing significantly to a strong partnership with the UM CTSA site. In addition to the grant resources, the institution is contributing substantial in-kind support, cost-sharing, support of pilot and recruitment programs, and renovation costs, a more than 1:1 match of NIH dollars. The UM CTSA program includes an Education Program that reaches a wide spectrum of audiences, from undergraduates to mid-career faculty, from basic scientists to population researchers, and from staff to community members.
