Rush University Medical Center and John H. Stroger Jr. Hospital of Cook County Collaborative Research Project

The program is designed to support research that is truly collaborative between the two institutions. The intent of the program is to facilitate the development of new clinical and basic science research programs. Collaboration is broadly defined to include any project with substantive participation of investigators from both institutions. Results of funded projects are expected to be shared at the annual Research Forum. These grants are for one year of funding with an average budget of $10,000 per project.
