Welcome to the Division of Research

Researchers in the department of surgery include investigators with expertise in basic, clinical, and translational science. We are dedicated to fostering greater understanding of the causes and treatment of disease. The division is focused on providing broad-based support to surgery faculty, residents and doctoral candidates, as well as medical students, who continue the department’s rich tradition of innovation, discovery, interdisciplinary cooperation and securing extramural funding.

Across all nine of the department’s clinical divisions, faculty serve as principal or co-investigators in nearly 40 industry-sponsored clinical studies, covering a wide range of subjects. Additionally, the College of Medicine and department of surgery have made investments of pilot projects that show significant promise for the future development in the treatment of disease, advances in techniques, or medical device invention.
