UI Center for Advancing Multimorbidity Science (CAMS)

Profiling risk and symptom expression to develop customized therapies for adults with multiple chronic conditions

Welcome to CAMS! CAMS was established in August, 2018 as one of three Exploratory Centers of Excellence funded by the National Institute of Nursing Research (NINR) at the National Institutes of Health (NIH). The Center is charged with building research infrastructure and centralized resources to catalyze new interdisciplinary, biobehavioral research teams to tackle the challenges of conducting research on human adults with multiple complex chronic conditions.
