Global REACH supports UMMS faculty looking to create promising new international collaborations and also offers funding for faculty to engage students in ongoing global health efforts. In addition, the Joint Institute partnership with Peking University Health Science Center (PKUHSC), Michigan Medicine's primary institutional partner in China, holds an annual request for proposals for joint research projects between UMMS faculty and their PKUHSC counterparts.
Partnership Development Grants: Awards to help UMMS faculty members to strengthen new relationships with international colleagues or help reinvigorate collaborations that stalled because of COVID-19 and pandemic-related travel restrictions. The funds can be used for travel to or from Ann Arbor to meet with partners.
Faculty-Student Travel Grants: Small travel awards to help faculty engage UMMS student mentees (pursuing MD, MS, or PhD degrees) in their global health initiatives.
Joint Institute Collaborative Research Awards: Supporting joint research projects between Michigan Medicine faculty and their collaborators at Peking University Health Science Center.
