Intended to support new applications, preferably to NIH, that involve at least two faculty members from outside the home department of the principal investigator.
Designed to accelerate research by providing rapid, targeted funding to address small but critical gaps in clinical and translational research work that is not currently funded by other sources.
The Alliance for Research in Chicagoland Communities and the Practice-Based Research Program seed grants are offered for investigators and community-based collaborators to develop research partnerships and projects.

Aligning our work with the Northwestern Medicine priorities and strategic focus
IPHAM members have access to a wide variety of communications-related support. This includes grant and manuscript editing services as well as strategy development, social media, and dissemination support.
The Research Administration Team oversees and manages pre and post-award administration, including approvals of procurement and expense reports, proposal development, award setup and management, budget preparation, compliance, effort reporting, financial management and financial reporting and projections.
The Financial Administration Team provides overall fiscal management, accounting, and financial reporting for all IPHAM centers. They are involved in daily transaction processing and manage accounts payable and receivable. They also play a key role in the annual budgeting and forecasting processes.
Professional Affairs Coordination partners directly with Northwestern’s Human Resources department to provide human resources support to IPHAM faculty and staff. Professional Affairs can assist faculty and staff with recruiting fresh talent for both faculty and staff appointments, onboarding new hires, overseeing performance evaluations, distributing merit increases, managing employee relations issues such as corrective action, sending a monthly HR newsletter with IPHAM HR updates and applying for visas for faculty and staff. Professional Affairs is also available for any coaching or mediation from which faculty or staff members might benefit.
IPHAM is gathering a list of resources available to the community to support our efforts around COVID-19.
