We excel in clinical and basic disease-related research. We align clinical research with the goals of the clinical enterprise and actively engage our clinical faculty. Basic research is focused in three areas: redox biology and pathology, cardiovascular disease, and histology research support. We actively engage residents and medical students.

At the end of Research Day (2018), Dr. Leonard gave a surprise announcement: a very generous bequest of $5 million by research faculty emerita, Dr. Sally Huber! The funds will go toward two endowed professorships for junior investigators in our department. The endowments will be named for her parents, Elmer R. Huber and Blodwen S. Huber, and will support junior research faculty for five years.(9/2018)

This amazing support will allow junior faculty time and funds to gain independence while pursuing the milestone achievement of being awarded their first R01 grant.
