Research at the College of Medicine
The UC College of Medicine—a Clinical and Translational Science Award (CTSA) institution—is a top-50 medical school for research according to U.S. News and World Report.
Twelve of the college’s 23 departments rank among the nation’s top 50 for research funding from the National Institutes of Health.
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.
