  • A health professional degree (e.g. DC, DO, MD, PT, RN) with experience in healthcare delivery is a plus.

We have been awarded over $40M in research grants through the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, Health Resources and Services Administration, and private foundations. Our research is conducted collaboratively with research-intensive universities and healthcare institutions. Active partners include investigators at Yale University, Osher Center for Integrative Medicine jointly based at Brigham and Women's Hospital and Harvard Medical School, and The University of Iowa College of Public Health.
