Commonwealth Universal Research Enhancement Program (CURE)


In 2001, Act 77 directed the Pennsylvania Department of Health to establish a health research program.   Under this program research grants are awarded for clinical, health services, and biomedical research.   Act 77 establishes two types of health research grants – formula (non-competitive) grants and (non-formula) competitive grants.   All entities receiving funds must follow certain reporting, monitoring and evaluation procedures.
