Grants & Research

The Consortium also has a long history of helping and consulting with investigators at the University of Minnesota and other institutions on interdisciplinary and multi-institutional grant proposals. We welcome this opportunity to further research and collaboration. Please see selected grant proposals aided by the Consortium.

The Consortium competes for grants to originate leading work on the societal implications of biomedicine and the life sciences. We thank the National Institutes of Health (NIH) and its National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI) and National Cancer Institute (NCI), the National Science Foundation (NSF), the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, Robina LaPPS Research Funding, MacArthur Foundation Law and Neuroscience Project, and The Greenwall Foundation for supporting our research.
