University of Michigan Integrative Medicine Research Center

Background

The University Michigan's Complementary and Alternative Research Center (CAMRC) began in 1998 with a five year, $6.7 million grant from the National Institute of Health (NCCAM) to investigate CAM therapies that may help prevent, manage and treat cardiovascular disease and its associated conditions. CAMRC was comprised of an interdisciplinary group of researchers, a network of researchers that extended across departments of the Medical School, among the allied health schools and colleges, through central campus departments, and which also included CAM practitioners from the community. The CAMRC had enrolled over 500 subjects since its inception. It provided the UMIM research team with a Data Management/Statistical Analysis Core and an Administrative Core. The name was changed to University of Michigan Integrative Medicine in 2007.
