Collaborative Projects

Collaborative Projects (CPs), as defined by the NIH, are joint investigations with scientists and clinicians outside our Center that serve as test-beds for new technologies with significant potential biomedical impact. Through CPs our Center engages with partners at other institutions in so-called push-pull relationships—interactions in which unique technologies provided by our center enable other investigators solve uniquely challenging problems (push). In return, feedback from our CP partners allows us to modify and improve the very technologies we create (pull).

Our Center is currently engaged in 58 such projects with research partners at 33 institutions in 9 countries on 4 continents.
