At Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine, we have a diverse team of physicians and scientists who collaborate to develop groundbreaking patient-centered research strategies. Our research programs focus on:
- Healthy aging
- Chronic Pain and Opioid Use
- Genomics and Precision Medicine
We use collaborative and multi-disciplinary approaches to uncover basic biological mechanisms and cultivate new strategies to combat disease.
Trials and Studies
We conduct a variety of clinical trials and studies at Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine to translate research findings into clinical practice. Our trials and studies focus on diseases and conditions that affect the health of our communities, such as cancer, cardiovascular disease, and neurodegenerative disorders. We also conduct studies to investigate the safety and efficacy of new treatments and therapies.
Engaging in Research
We encourage students and faculty to engage in research initiatives and participate in our research programs. Our research programs provide students and faculty with the opportunity to work with world-class scientists and gain experience in cutting-edge research. We offer a range of educational and training opportunities within our academic programs, as well as additional lectures and mentorship programs.
Cores and Shared Services
Our research facilities are supported by cutting-edge cores and shared services that provide access to a range of specialized equipment and technologies. Some of our cores and shared services include:
- Genomics Core Facility
- Proteomics Core Facility
- Imaging Core Facility
- Histology Core Facility
- Animal Facilities
- Biostatistics Core
These cores and shared services support the research programs at Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine and provide an outstanding experience for our students and faculty.
Our research is recognized through significant funding from the National Institute of Health (NIH), National Science Foundation (NSF), and other funding agencies. This recognition enables us to invest in state-of-the-art equipment to support our dedicated laboratory space of over 15,000 sq ft.
