A significant facet of the mission of the Emory University School of Medicine (SOM) is to conduct innovative and collaborative research and integrate this knowledge into the practice of medicine.

Through the years, the medical school has partnered in and outside of Emory to strengthen our efforts in biomedical research (Grady Memorial Hospital, Georgia Tech, the Atlanta Veterans Affairs Medical Center, and Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta are just a few).

Our medical school faculty received $355.7 million in sponsored research funding in fiscal year 2017, plus another $84.9 million in funds at other units in the health sciences center and at the Atlanta VA Medical Center. Ranked 19th nationally in NIH dollars received, the school is best known for its research and treatment in infectious disease, brain health, heart disease, cancer, transplantation, orthopaedics, pediatrics, renal disease, ophthalmology, and geriatrics.

I invite you to explore the range of research core facilities and other resources supported by SOM, and to contact me with questions.
