Advancing Medical Research

In laboratories and research facilities throughout Indiana, IU School of Medicine is working to ensure that research programs at the school continue to grow. External research funding exceeded $320 million in 2016, a record level for the school. We established new centers in Musculoskeletal Health and Clinical Health Innovation and Implementation Science. Our school’s Precision Health Initiative was chosen as the first recipient of the Indiana University Grand Challenge. This $120M program aims to advance personalized medicine approaches through genomic medicine, cellular immunotherapy, chemical and structural biology, and data science. We currently have searches underway for leaders of several pillars of this important initiative
