Our external research funding remains strong with over $39 million awarded (FY16 UVM Research Funding by Division by PI) in 2016 including two COBRE awards, growth in Federal contracts supporting our Vaccine Testing Center, mentored awards, two T32 training grants, and numerous individual research awards from a diverse blend of Federal, Agency, Foundation, and Industry sources. The department continues to broaden its translational and commercialization research capacity through SPARK-VT and clinical trials to inspire faculty to refine novel research concepts and pursue STTR/SBIR funding opportunities.

Thematic Research

Many of our projects are organized around themes and involve faculty with a broad range of expertise and interest including Cardiovascular Research, Vermont Cancer Center, Immunobiology Research and the Vermont Lung Center.

Clinical Research

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. For institution-level references, please visit the Office of Clinical Trials Research website and the Larner College of Medicine’s Clinical Research Resources website

The Department of Medicine has a robust clinical trials portfolio of 296 active protocols managed by 94 Principal Investigators. The department’s research administration organizational structure (DOM Research Structure) supports faculty and staff in the conduct of clinical trials research. Support includes assistance with completion of institutional forms, training and education for research coordinators and nurses, auditing, creation of budgets and tracking of finances associated with clinical trials research. To further explore clinical trial research opportunities, please contact any of the personnel listed in the department’s research structure.
