WellSpringboard, in partnership with the Michigan Institute for Clinical and Health Research, is a crowd-sourcing and crowd-funding platform that engages the public in sharing their health research ideas. Proposals that receive crowd support can be matched with University of Michigan researchers and opened up for crowd-funding to get the research started.

One matched proposal currently in the crowd-funding stage would examine whether or not people who use CPAP therapy for sleep apnea get more breathing-related infections.
