Research that helps people throughout Washington and the world live healthier, more productive lives.

The Elson S. Floyd College of Medicine’s Office of Research is dedicated to helping faculty and staff engage in cutting-edge research that seeks to explain, prevent and treat health concerns. We are developing an emphasis on research that impacts the lives of patients, their families and providers in challenging health care environments. Our faculty members are engaged in work across different levels of analysis, ranging from foundational areas like genetics to highly applied areas such as spatial epidemiology.

We are proud to contribute to the university’s strategic plan. Their aspirational goals challenge us to think big and not feel constrained in how we engage in research. Even though we are grateful for our long-standing partners and funders, the strategic plan highlights the need to continuously seek new partners and funding sources. If you would like to join us in this exciting adventure, please do not hesitate to contact our office.
