Crain’s Cleveland Business: Stan Gerson, dean of the School of Medicine, discussed a new federal agency tasked with directing “high-risk, high-reward research” possibly coming to Cleveland. “Whether or not the agency ends up in Ohio, I could see the region’s healthcare leaders taking part in some of that work,” Gerson said. “If Cleveland was selected, if the project administration came here, it would be the think tank center. It doesn’t mean we would get the benefit of all the $6.5 billion, but we would be close, and that is always good.”
