The A. Alfred Taubman Medical Research Institute supports some of today’s most aggressive medical science researchers, all members of the University of Michigan Medical School faculty, with three-year grants that they use to fund their investigations. 

These clinician-scientists and their laboratory teams are working to combat a wide array of diseases: childhood and adult cancer, neurodegentative diseases, diabetes, ALS, cardiovascular disease, obesity and many other debilitating conditions.

Scholars also serve as advocates for research by taking part in U-M efforts to educate the public about the importance of biomedical research and the need to provide support for scientific study.

Founding Taubman Scholars

The original Taubman Scholars, they continue to serve as leaders and advisers to the institute.

Senior Taubman Scholars

Through the progress of their research and their public stewardship of the cause of medical science, these former Taubman Scholars have earned renewed funding.

Taubman Scholars

The Taubman Scholars are senior level physician-researchers and thought leaders in discovery-driven science.

Taubman Emerging Scholars

The Emerging Scholars Program provides support for clinician-scientists on the U-M faculty who are in the early stages of their research careers.

There is a pressing need in the scientific community to do more to support early-career researchers who are increasingly choosing to leave the laboratory due to financial pressures. We are at risk of losing the next generation of our best and brightest scientists.

The Emerging Scholars Program offers an opportunity for them to establish their credentials in order to secure traditional funding in the future.  They are aggresive "high risk, high reward" scientists who already have initatied a number of human clinical trials of new therapies for disease.
