Our external research funding remains strong with over $25 million awarded in 2013 including two COBRE awards, growth in Federal contracts supporting our Vaccine Testing Center, mentored awards, T32 training grants, and numerous individual research awards from a diverse blend of Federal, Agency, Foundation, and Industry sources. To broaden our translational and commercialization research capacity, we launched the SPARK Initiative to inspire our faculty to refine novel research concepts and pursue STTR/SBIR funding opportunities.
Many of our projects are organized around themes and involve faculty with a broad range of expertise and interest including Cardiovasular Research, Vermont Cancer Center, Immunobiology Research and the Vermont Lung Center.
Clinical investigations promote the advances in basic science to the bedside and relay new problems and questions back to basic scientists. Patient-oriented research plays an important role in the discovery and development of new therapies and treatments. See Clinical Research Resources for more information.
The College's Core Facilities are shared facilties and resources that provide researchers with the sophisticated equipment and methodologies that help expand their work.
