Research at the College of Medicine
The UC College of Medicine—a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institution—is a top-40 medical school for research according to U.S. News and World Report.
The college has made a commitment to:
- Creating impactful and sustainable biomedical research programs.
- Developing passionate and innovative research teams.
- Becoming a destination for clinical trials.
- Harnessing “big data” to be not just evidence-based, but also evidence-gathering.
Four institutes—operated jointly with UC Health and focused on cancer, neurosciences, cardiovascular disease and metabolic health—serve as the foundation for these commitments.
