Collaborative Health Sciences Program
The Collaborative Health Sciences Program supports novel ideas and approaches to research and education benefiting the health of Wisconsin residents. The 2015 request for proposals is expected to be released in February.
Collaborative teams include a principal investigator, one or two co-principal investigators and any number of collaborators. 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 in the School of Medicine and Public Health or other UW-Madison schools or colleges or with UW System campuses, Aurora Health Care, Marshfield Clinic, Gundersen Health System, the Medical College of Wisconsin, state and local government agencies or community organizations.
Teams must include at least two of the following disciplines: basic, clinical, social/behavioral and/or population sciences. Those with a history of collaboration must explore a new direction. Awards are up to $500,000 over three years.
A preliminary application is required and will be considered for further development as a full application. Finalists will be interviewed by the Partnership Education and Research Committee.
