Expanding Research Through Collaboration

Northeast Ohio could create 11,000 more jobs simply by being “average” when it comes to attracting federal research dollars to the region, so that’s why it is encouraging to see new collaborations being formed across the region to support expanded research efforts.

Recently, Akron General Medical Center and Cleveland State University announced they will establish a joint program to boost their involvement in bioengineering through testing, evaluation, development and enhancement of products and systems used in health care.

Under the five-year agreement, the institutions will participate in joint research projects in various areas, including orthopedics. They plan to exchange lectures and jointly create a Clinical Education Program that would involve medical residents and graduate students, and will share information on opportunities for state and federal grants.
