This program supports the efforts of established investigators to initiate new programs of collaborative, interdisciplinary research and education aimed at addressing public health issues that have not yielded to traditional approaches.


Grant Awards


Grant awards are up to $600,000 over three years. The Partnership Education and Research Committee (PERC) expects to award three grants during the 2017 grant cycle.


Applicant Eligibility


Collaborative teams include a principal investigator, one or two co-principal investigators, and any number of collaborators from at least two of the following disciplines: basic, clinical, social/behavioral and/or population sciences. Teams with a history of collaboration must explore a new direction.


The principal investigator must be a professor, associate professor, senior scientist or distinguished scientist at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. Co-principal investigators and collaborators may have appointments at any UW System campus, Aurora Health Care, Marshfield Clinic, Gundersen Health System, the Medical College of Wisconsin, state and local government agencies, or community organizations.


Key Dates and Deadlines


A preliminary application is required and will be considered by PERC for further development as a full application. Finalists will be interviewed by the committee.
