Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research welcomes Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School to Inter-Institutional Network for Chiropractic Research

 

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research announces the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine, jointly based at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School, has joined the Inter-Institutional Network for Chiropractic Research. The Network is a five-year multidisciplinary effort designed to facilitate chiropractic research across multiple institutions and disciplines.

 

The Network is a collaborative effort between the Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research, Yale Center for Medical Informatics and the Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School. The first action step will be to convene a steering committee of renowned experts to develop a chiropractic research agenda and establish teams of interdisciplinary researchers. These scientists will conduct projects aimed at improving the quality of chiropractic patient care. They also will collaborate on future grant applications to funding agencies such as the National Institutes of Health.

 

The Network will benefit from the unique strengths of the participating investigators and institutions, creating a chiropractic research portfolio that’s truly translational. Vice Chancellor for Research and Health Policy at Palmer College of Chiropractic Christine M. Goertz, D.C., Ph.D. (Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research) will be the network director. Peter Wayne, Ph.D. (Osher Center for Integrative Medicine at Brigham and Women’s Hospital and Harvard Medical School) will join Anthony J. Lisi, D.C. (Yale Center for Medical Informatics and VA Connecticut Healthcare System) as a co-director. These investigators, along with collaborating faculty at the respective institutions, bring together complementary expertise in health services research, clinical practice, and health-care policy. Together they will form a robust foundation to advance chiropractic science, practice and policy.

 

“We are excited to include the Osher Center as a member of the Inter-Institutional Network for Chiropractic Research,” said Dr. Goertz. “Our collective efforts provide an unprecedented opportunity to conduct clinical and basic research that advances chiropractic research and evidence-based clinical practice, ultimately benefiting the patients we serve.”

 

The Palmer Center for Chiropractic Research (PCCR), headquartered on Palmer College of Chiropractic’s campus in Davenport, Iowa, is the most highly funded chiropractic research center in the U.S. Within the past 10 years, the PCCR has been awarded grants from the National Institutes of Health, National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, the U.S. Health Resources and Services Administration and the Department of Defense, in addition to private foundation grants.
