e-HAIL: E-Health & Artificial Intelligence

Making the University of Michigan a premier hub for AI and health to improve health using technology

e-HAIL: E-Health and Artificial Intelligence

e-HAIL is a joint Michigan Medicine and College of Engineering initiative that aims to make U-M a premier hub for research that innovates in health through AI.

Our focus is on collaboration, grant development, and infrastructure to support a multi-disciplinary approach to innovations in healthcare and AI/ML methodologies.

The initiative provides several opportunities for researchers to connect and learn from others operating at the intersection of AI and health.

We provide concrete support for preparing grant applications, including finding collaborators, grant writing assistance, and hiring student support.

Stay tuned for more as the program grows!
