The Center’s structure revolves around three cores with distinct, yet mutually supportive functions:


The Research Core functions as the Center’s foundation, supporting and integrating outstanding University of Michigan faculty to promote innovative research collaborations.


The Clinical Core exists symbiotically with the other cores by identifying clinically relevant research questions, involving patient populations in research studies and translating cutting edge Research Core findings into clinical care and patient education


The Outreach & Engagement Core will help support the mission of the Center and the University by translating research findings to key stakeholders and providing learning resources through externally directed platforms.
