The Practice-Based Research Program (PBRP) fosters collaborative research between community-based practitioners and Northwestern University academic faculty. A program in the NUCATS and IPHAM Center for Community Health, it provides assistance and coordinates activities across Northwestern's two primary care practice based research networks: The Pediatric Practice Research Group (PPRG) and the Research and Education for Academic Achievement (REACH) Network.
The PBRP Seed Grant Program aims to:
- Increase engagement of academics and community clinicians from practice-based research networks,
- Foster the development of practice-based proposals for external funding and,
- Support the preparatory steps that lead to dissemination and implementation of research findings in community practice settings.

Partnerships may explore practice-based research strategies, patient-centered outcomes research (PCOR), or other engaged research or improvement collaborations across the translational spectrum of research. Partnerships exploring health equity issues are encouraged.
