Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research (MICHR)
MICHR is to enable and enhance clinical and translational research by supporting research at every phase.  MICHR supports early career investigators through its robust pilot grant program as well as career development and mentoring services. MICHR maintains the website, linking potential volunteers to research studies, and offers many clinical research management services, as well as consultation to assist investigators in designing, writing, and submitting external grant proposals. MICHR also provides guidance with study design and scientific review, advice for second round submissions, administrative and regulatory support, and budgeting.
Created by the Regents of the U-Michigan in 2006, MICHR is also part of a national consortium of 55 medical research institutions funded through Clinical and Translational Science Awards (CTSAs). The CTSA initiative is led by the National Center for Research Resources, through the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
