Patients and Families Helping to Advance Care
Doctors in the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences work everyday with patients and families who are motivated to advance standards of care for a particular disease or condition.
These individuals help to support and inform research that is crucial in moving studies forward, especially when there are gaps in external funding or insufficient awareness about the need to improve treatments or find a cure.
Here you will meet patients and families who are partnering with Jacobs School faculty in this way and who feel tremendous gratitude for the care they are currently receiving.
This form of collaboration is a crucial component of academic medicine and a foundation for many of its most notable achievements.
