This page provides a brief overview of the funding that the research group has received directly for research or training, or has been received by a collaborator used to support articles this group has published.
Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ)
The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is a government entity under the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services. AHRQ's mission is to "produce evidence to make healthcare safer, higher quality, more accessible, equitable, and affordable, and to work within the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and with other partners to make sure that the evidence is understood and used."
Department of Defense Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs (CDMRP)
The Congressionally Directed Medical Research Programs provide funding for biomedical research that is considered high-risk, high-reward. These types of high-risk studies may be difficult to find funding for. The goal of this funding is to advance "paradigm shifting research, solutions that will lead to cures or improvements in patient care, or breakthrough technologies and resources for clinical benefit. The CDMRP strives to transform health care for Service Members and the American public through innovative and impactful research."
National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR)
The National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research is a U.S. government organization, but not a part of the National Institutes of Health. NIDILRR is a part of the Administration for Community Living, and aims to "generate new knowledge and to promote its effective use to improve the abilities of individuals with disabilities to perform activities of their choice in the community, and to expand society’s capacity to provide full opportunities and accommodations for its citizens with disabilities."
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
The National Institutes of Health was founded in 1887 and is one of the world's largest research funding organizations. The NIH comprises 27 Institutes and Centers who aim to "acquire new knowledge to help prevent, detect, diagnose, and treat disease and disability, from the rarest genetic disorder to the common cold."
Specific funding from:
