Through partnerships in research, Group Health Research Institute (GHRI) is discovering practical ways to deliver high-quality, affordable health care. We bring experience, competence, and unique capabilities for high-impact results.
Our strengths include experience in large epidemiologic studies, randomized trials, and pragmatic clinical trials—finding answers to important questions within real-world populations.
If you’re interested in conducting research at Group Health, you must collaborate with a GHRI faculty member. This ensures that proposed projects are consistent with Group Health policies and that any potential effects on the care-delivery system are addressed. GHRI collaborators are particularly needed for studies that affect patient care or collect either large amounts of Group Health data or certain types of sensitive data.
Be aware that projects involving Group Health programming or staff time require external funding.
You may contact our faculty members directly to establish a collaboration based on common areas of interest. If there is no GHRI faculty member for you to partner with, you may ask the GHRI Feasibility Review Committee to evaluate your proposal. The committee helps GHRI leadership determine if an external project is a good fit for Group Health and may also help you find a GHRI faculty collaborator.
GHRI determines a potential project’s feasibility based on:
If you’re proposing research at Group Health in collaboration with an identified GHRI faculty member:
If you’re proposing research at Group Health and have not yet identified a GHRI faculty collaborator:
The GHRI-industry collaboration will study sample collection for lab tests, writes Clinical Research Director Tricia Buscio.
