The department has 56,000 sq. ft. of laboratory and service space and, in addition, we have designated clinical and non-laboratory space for research in Epidemiology, Stress Reduction, Obesity, other Preventive and Behavioral Studies. The department has substantially grown in patient-oriented research with over 100 clinical trials and 19 commercially supported projects throughout broad clinical areas including clinical cooperative and industry trials in cancer, liver diseases, gastroenterology, cardiovascular medicine, diabetes, endocrinology, infectious diseases, tobacco cessation, pulmonary, renal medicine, dermatology, and hematology.
Our success lies in our commitment to enhance our research base in basic science, behavioral, clinical and translational research with a vision to be recognized as a top ranking department in academic, research and clinical Medicine.
