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.
