Our Mission: Advancing Knowledge to Improve Health

Brainpower and a little daring. A certain stubborn curiosity. Hard work. And passion for the sciences that make for solid, often ground-breaking research.

For nearly a half-century, the Center for Health Research has been making key connections between lifestyle and wellness, between disease and its effect on people’s lives, between treatment and outcome. CHR pursues a vigorous agenda of patient-centered, population- and practice-based research.

CHR’s funding comes primarily from federal grants and contracts (69%); CHR also receives funding from industry (~18%), private foundations (~1%), and Kaiser Permanente (~12%).
