We conduct innovative and impactful research that will improve human health by serving as a hub for scientific discovery and its translation to clinical care. We achieve this by:

  • Creating a new research facility and program focused on biotechnology and translational clinical care
  • Committing resources to retaining our team of talented researchers and capitalizing on investments in our research infrastructure
  • Expanding our nationally distinctive research programs by recruiting over one hundred net new physicians, scientists, and physician-scientists
  • Building a robust clinical research infrastructure that offers support at all levels of clinical research
  • Significantly expanding access to clinical trials with the creation of a state-wide clinical trials network
  • Creating a clinical data repository

Learn More About Our Researchers

In our new School of Medicine Research in Motion video series, we asked our researchers three questions: What do you do? What do you love about your research? How will it impact human health?

We’re excited to share their answers in weekly 1 to 2-minute videos. We hope you’ll enjoy watching them as we celebrate all the compelling and inspiring work by our School of Medicine researchers.
