Transformative Research & Leadership Development
Our interdisciplinary teams discover, design, and disseminate cost-saving innovations for conditions comprising the bulk of U.S. health care spending. We collaborate closely with research, industry, and philanthropic partners.
Our Response to the COVID-19 Challenge
The COVID-19 crisis is challenging CERC’s faculty, scholars, and fellows to rapidly develop innovations that lower the cost of clinically excellent infectious disease care. Additionally, our Partnership in AI-Assisted Care, with faculty and graduate students from the computer science department, is moving ahead with computer vision applications to ease the burden on clinicians striving to deliver exceptional COVID-19 care to ICU patients.
