Partnerships are at the heart of CHiP. Our collaborators are part of public, private, and nonprofit sectors, and all have an interest in developing innovative, practical solutions to difficult health questions affecting our communities. An individual investigator or organization alone is unlikely to have all the tools and insights that are needed, but together we can identify meaningful projects and provide an environment for open collaboration.
We have a long history of developing solutions to difficult data questions. The results of our research offer insights that can help patients and their doctors make more informed decisions.
