Developing a Healthy Cleveland Initiative

There are many examples of ways that researchers across the university come together to improve people’s lives. Today this effort is accelerated through the university’s $64 million Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) from the National Institutes of Health, the single largest NIH grant ever made to Northeast Ohio. Using some of these funds, the School of Medicine is launching the Institute for Patient and Population Health Sciences and Personalized Medicine. Its goal is to further our understanding of precisely what approaches work best for each person, and how best to answer the medical needs of entire communities.

Under the umbrella of developing a Healthy Cleveland Initiative, the alliance is in the process of identifying the top cross-disciplinary areas defined under categories including disease mechanisms; delivery; technology; healthy behavior; health mechanisms; social/financial/legal/ethical; populations.

The Human Health Alliance is looking for proposals that:
* Present an innovative, cross-disciplinary project
* Address the goals for the human health alliance
* Etc
