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.

The combination of Bucknell's nationally recognized educational programs and faculty with Geisinger's field-leading healthcare delivery programs and staff is a unique opportunity for the institutions to pursue a joint collaborative mission of improving patient care and advancing related research. The Bucknell Geisinger Research Initiative (BGRI) was created to advance that mission by providing resources in support of collaborative research projects and initiatives across a spectrum of disciplines and organizational interests.

Objectives of the Initiative - The BGRI will target providing advocacy, coordination and funding support for research and educational collaborations between Bucknell University and Geisinger Health System.
