Research

The School of Medicine & Health Sciences conducts nearly $25 million in research on average every year.

Although faculty from every department are engaged in research in some way, those in our Department of Biomedical Sciences lead the way, winnings dozens of grants from the National Institutes of Health, Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, National Science Foundation, and U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, among other organizations.
