Founded in 1943, Hektoen Institute of Medicine is one of the largest medical nonprofit organizations in Chicago. For over 70 years, it has promoted medical learning, education, and research in order to extend the boundaries of knowledge and improve the care of the sick. Today, Hektoen continues to advance its mission by providing the administrative infrastructure for a $30-million portfolio of grant-funded programs on behalf of local government agencies, principal investigators, and nonprofit organizations. These programs provide critical basic health services and well as ground-breaking research to improve health outcomes for Chicago’s most vulnerable populations.
Hektoen provides a full suite of grant administration services for investigators conducting research in a variety of areas, including HIV treatment and prevention, behavioral health, oncology, healthcare associated infections, medical informatics, and more. With Hektoen’s administrative backing, our investigators have secured funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Health Resources & Services Administration (HRSA), Patient-Centered Outcomes Research Institute (PCORI), and countless other public and private funders to advance basic science, translational, and applied clinical research.
