Strategic Collaborations

Geisinger partners with industry, academic and community organizations to help advance research and innovation within our health system.

Bucknell Geisinger Research Initiative

When Bucknell University and Geisinger Health System were each established in central Pennsylvania, the region was transformed into one that could benefit from and support the institutions' collective intellectual, healthcare and community development initiatives. As two institutional leaders in the region, a formal partnership in the advancement of healthcare delivery, education and research has truly transformative potential at the local, regional and national levels.

Geisinger-Regeneron Partnership

Geisinger Health System is partnering with Regeneron, a leading biopharmaceutical company, for a long-term, large research study.

Genetic research holds great promise to increase understanding of the causes of diseases, disorders and medical conditions - including conditions that today have limited or no treatments available. By comparing genetic information against medical histories, Geisinger and Regeneron hope to eventually develop new means of diagnosing, preventing and/or treating medical conditions - before they cause significant harm. Some participants may also receive information that could be useful in their own medical care.

This study is aligned with Geisinger's focus on innovative research to help patients in our communities - as well as improve healthcare for patients across the nation and worldwide.
