The leadership of the Institute for Public Health and Medicine (IPHAM) provides its vision, mission, goals and strategy. It also provides an ongoing source of centralized leadership and coordination for the institute’s centers, cores and programs of research. It sets policy regarding allocation of resources and priorities for future centers or priority research program areas.
The leadership core is led by the institute director with representatives from the leadership of all institute centers and cores. It assembles and supports internal and external advisory committees/boards with representation by key stakeholders from across the Feinberg School of Medicine, other Northwestern University schools and the community. A major function of IPHAM leadership is to facilitate the creation of collaborative teams that make the medical school more competitive for disease and discipline-specific NIH P- and U-series grants/contracts as well as other government and foundation interdisciplinary/collaborative grants.
