Get Involved

There are many ways you can get involved and contribute to the success of Precision Health at the University of Michigan.

Researchers

Precision Health at the University of Michigan is designed to bring together researchers from across the university, as well as from other institutions, by building data resources, computational environments, analytical tools, and implementation platforms that can be used across many areas of science, and by providing the infrastructure and access to data that allow faculty to explore ideas that historically were impossible to consider because of obstacles and restraints.

To get involved:

  • Review our workgroups established to support precision health research and see if one is aligned with your research interest
  • Consider applying for one of our grants
  • Review our Tools and Resources page to see how we can help advance your research
  • Join our mailing list to receive regular updates about Precision Health at the University of Michigan

Study Participants

To move Precision Health at U-M from discovery to the end goal of improving people’s health, we need individuals to participate: people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and ages.

One opportunity is to participate in the Michigan Genomics Initiative, a research study that involves collecting a blood sample and some information about your health and background.

Many researchers across the University of Michigan are conducting clinical trials testing potential new therapies, including precision-based therapies. Search the UMHealthResearch site for clinical trials available to individuals with a variety of

The U-M Comprehensive Cancer Center also offers a searchable database of cancer-related clinical trials. Anyone with questions about cancer treatment can call the U-M Cancer AnswerLine to speak to a registered oncology nurse: 800-865-1125.
