Dr. Peter Crawford, Vice Chair, Research

The mission of the Department of Medicine's research is to conduct and catalyze scientific inquiry leading to the prevention, detection and treatment of human disease. Our vision is to provide each patient with the opportunity to participate in the process of scientific discovery and our aspiration is to perform the highest quality patient-oriented research and to train the next generation of biomedical scientists to eclipse our accomplishments.

Clinical Studies & Trials

Our clinical research studies are aimed at evaluating a medical, surgical, or behavioral intervention. They are the primary way that researchers find out if a new treatment, a new drug, diet or medical device is safe and effective.

Programs & Centers

Our research programs lead the department's efforts towards the mission to improve the health and well-being of people, now and in the future, by providing exemplary medical care, discovering and applying new knowledge, and training the next generation of physicians in the science and practice of medicine.

Research Labs

Explore the innovative research our faculty are currently engaged in. From understanding molecular mechanisms of leukemia to developing new gene therapies to treat cancer and beyond, our faculty and trainees are pushing the boundaries of medicine.
