Grants

Throughout its history, the China Medical Board has adopted a policy of not accepting unsolicited grant proposals. Thus, inquiries or unsolicited proposals may not receive an expeditious reply. The rationale is straightforward—CMB's strategic grant-making is highly focused on targeted activities to advance its mission. In its earliest phase, the China Medical Board devoted nearly all of its financing to Peking Union Medical College. Since 1950, the China Medical Board’s grant-making has been targeted at key Chinese and Asian universities. CMB encourages international groups wishing to work in China to establish relationships directly with CMB-affiliated Chinese and Asian institutions.

  • Project: CMB-CP in Migrant Health Policy
  • Dates: January 01, 2013 to December 31, 2015
  • Region: China
  • Description: This three-year project supports the institutional development of the SYSU Center of Migrant Health Policy, primarily through strengthening its leadership and young faculty capacity and supporting research projects. The grant will strengthen the SYSU Migrant Health Policy team by helping to recruit 1-2 additional full-time and 3-5 part-time researchers, as well as 2-3 post-doctoral fellows with diverse backgrounds. The project also prioritizes development of young researchers through training, competition for seed grants, and development of partnerships with overseas Chinese researchers. Additionally, the grant supports a health survey among migrant workers in the Pearl Delta area, which will establish long-term research sites and provide a research basis for migrant health researchers within and beyond SYSU.

  • Project: CMB-CP in Bioethics Research
  • Dates: January 01, 2013 to December 31, 2015
  • Region: China
  • Description: China’s population size, large clinical infrastructure, growing demand for health products, and limited regulatory environment has led China to become the world’s largest experimental site for clinical trials and pharmaceutical market. Based in PUMC’s Bioethics Center, this project proposes to fill in the cognitive, moral and regulatory gaps in bioethics and strengthen capacity of researchers, ethical committee members, faculty, biomedical editors and policy makers through workshops, symposiums and exchange programs. It will provide 120 stakeholders with bioethics training through three workshops, and train another 120 potential trainers through three international symposiums. The Center will send six graduate students and 2 key faculties to the University of Pennsylvania and NIH for 6-12 month trainings. The Center has been deeply involved in developing national guidelines and regulations as related to bioethics and will continue to engage actively to assist policy making.

  • Project: CMB-CP Lab in Health Economics
  • Dates: January 01, 2013 to December 31, 2015
  • Region: China
  • Description: This project will create a PKU-CMB Lab for Health Economics (LHE), which will produce rigorous economic research for better health policymaking and help train the next generation of Chinese health economists. In policy-related research, the LHE will focus on research related to the national priorities as indicated in the 12th five-year Health Reform Plan, specifically: the universal insurance system, national drug policy, and public hospital reform. The LHE will also produce a cadre of young Chinese health economists by providing researchers with access to high-quality data, new research opportunities, and mentorship from Chinese and international researchers.

  • Project: CMB-CP in Non-Communicable Diseases
  • Dates: January 01, 2013 to December 31, 2015
  • Region: China
  • Description: This project assembles a multidisciplinary team of biomedical scientists, epidemiologists, and health economists to address modifiable risk factors associated with obsesity-related chronic diseases, especially cardiovascular disease and diabetes. Two long-term cohorts, in rural and urban communities, of approximately 10,000 people will be established to generate research data, implement intervention, and also serve as school's public health community training sites. The project builds on a previous grant to PI Zhu Shankuan at Zhejiang University for obesity research (10-014). PI: ZHU Shankuan, Zhejiang University

  • Project: CMB-CP in Burden of Diseases in China
  • Dates: July 01, 2012 to June 30, 2015
  • Region: China
  • Description: This project creates a China Burden of Disease Research and Dissemination Center (CBDRDC) based at Peking Union Medical College (PUMC) in collaboration with the University of Washington and Queensland University. The Center will monitor the changing burden of disease to support critical evidence-based policymaking. The CMB-CP will consolidate four functionary platforms of resource sharing (through developing and sharing instruments, methodologies, database and dissemination via distance education), policy dialogue (through holding seminars), research (of disease and region specific studies) and capacity building (through developing training courses and educating post-docs).
