The Department of Medicine is the biggest research department in the School of Medicine, by far. Faculty research includes virtually all types of investigation, from clinical epidemiology and outcomes research to pure basic science and molecular biology, with considerable translational research between these poles. Full credit for the success of our research program must go to our faculty who play a critical role in obtaining and maintaining their research program while taking care of patients and teaching students. This would not be possible, but for our cadre of researchers, technicians, students, fellows and administrators who make up our total research mission. Faculty brings in around $100M annually in research funding from a wide variety of sources. In 2001, the Department of Medicine received $54.5M in awards from the National Institutes of Health and ranked 11th out of 111 Departments of Medicine nationwide.
It would be impossible to outline all the successes in our research program, however, we invite you to view our faculty profiles and our entire website so you can discover for yourself what our faculty are up to and how each individually contributes to the community in which they serve.
