Department of Medicine
Our external research funding continues to be robust with over $28 million awarded in 2011 including COBRE awards, a program project grant, a contract to establish and support a Vaccine Testing Center, mentored awards, T32 training grants, and individual R01 and R21 awards.
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.
