RAND REPORT


Dr. Gery Ryan and Dr. Homero Martinez of the RAND Corporation (http://www.rand.org) recently completed a working paper entitled "Description of Dr. Miriam and Sheldon G. Adelson Medical Research Foundation Collaborative Research Model."

AMRF asked RAND to examine the collaborative model that the Foundation is using to fund medical research.

The intent was to:
(1) describe the AMRF model and how it works;
(2) examine how the AMRF seeks to achieve quality;
(3) investigate the AMRF's plans for scale-up; and
(4) consider how to measure the AMRF's progress and success.
