By | October 25, 2004

Researchers at Case, the Cleveland Clinic Foundation, and MetroHealth`s Center for Health Care Research and Policy partnered to assemble a winning Multi-disciplinary Clinical Research Training Grant under the NIH Director`s new “Roadmap” initiative – one of seven awarded nationally in stiff competition. The $13.4 million project will emphasize the mutual benefits of scientists across the disciplinary spectrum working together to study and improve the public`s health. Project PI Richard Rudick, CCF`s Chairman of Clinical Research, will co-lead the training program with Center Director Randall D. Cebul, MD and Pedro Delgado, MD, Professor and Chairman of the Department of Psychiatry at University Hospitals. The program`s curriculum builds on the successful NIH-supported Clinical Research Scholars Program and will include important new seminars and courses to be developed in collaboration with key faculty throughout the medical school, Weatherhead School of Management, and the Bolton School of Nursing.Case, Roadmap initiative
