The Department of Biomedical and Health Sciences is committed to engaging in research that promotes the health and well-being of individuals.
Our faculty employ cutting-edge technologies in genetics, genomics, biochemistry and cell biology to better understand human disease. Current areas of focus include the immunology of infectious diseases, autoimmunity, cardiovascular disease, epigenetics, and cancer. Our research labs provide a vibrant scholarly environment for undergraduate and graduate students, postdoctoral associates and staff scientists. In 2019, our research was supported by more than $2 million in extramural funding.
