School of Medicine Receives $3 Million in Grants from Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation
The Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine will receive two grants totaling $3 million from The Mt. Sinai Health Care Foundation. A $2 million grant will continue the Mt. Sinai Scholars Program in the basic sciences and a $1 million challenge grant will establish the Dean's Catalytic Fund.
The Mt. Sinai Scholars Program enables the school to attract talented researchers to its basic science departments, bolstering research programs in physiology and biophysics, molecular biology and microbiology, neuroscience, pathology, nutrition, biochemistry and pharmacology. Researchers supported by the Mt. Sinai Scholars Program have gone on to successfully garner more than $12 million in external federal and foundation grants.
The Dean's Catalytic Fund grant will allow Case Western Reserve School of Medicine Dean Pamela B. Davis to implement her vision for the school by investing in faculty recruitment and retention, shared equipment and special educational programs. Read more.
