CU and GHS create Healthcare Research Powerhouse

Clemson University and Greenville Health System will establish a healthcare research powerhouse that will fuel growth in medical research and break­throughs, create opportunities for faculty, physicians and students and accelerate the flow of research funding into the Upstate, boosting the region’s economy. The collaboration will lead to job-creating start-up businesses in the Upstate’s growing medical and bioengineering hub. Under the landmark agreement signed Tuesday by the presidents, Clemson will be the primary research collaborator for Greenville Health System and serve as the research administrator for all research. This pivotal change will allow both organizations to work collectively to leverage existing administrative structures and expertise at Clemson with the clinical opportunities offered by Greenville Health System,  one of the largest healthcare systems in the Southeast.
