The Indiana University School of Medicine holds more than $200 million in research grants and contracts, including more than $100 million in awards from the National Institutes of Health. It hosts federally designated centers of excellence in women’s health, cancer, kidney disease, Alzheimer’s disease and related disorders, alcohol research, arthritis, a general clinical research center, and sexually transmitted disease centers on both the pediatric and adult levels. The School is home to the $155 million Indiana Genomics Initiative, Indiana University’s multidisciplinary research enterprise that harnesses the power of genomics to promote health and prevent disease, and to many Research Centers and Institutes.
With the unique environment at the Indiana University School of Medicine (IUSM) and the clinical association with the medical school, faculty and student collaborations as well as translational research and basic science are thriving on campus. Also, with the distinctive partnership between the state of Indiana and Indiana University through Innovate Indiana breakthroughs are being turned into business much more efficiently than in the past. Evidence of this can be seen in the NIH Indiana clinical and translational sciences institute (CTSI) which illustrates the collaborative environment not only within the schools that make up the university and campus but externally with other universities, local industry, and government.
With Core Research Laboratories and Research Centers and Institutes in a wide spectrum of areas, you have the opportunity to contribute to cutting edge research while furthering your professional development. School of Medicine research facilities include many modern buildings with state-of-the-art laboratories. Since 2003 600,000 ft2 of new research space has been added.
Further, the School is engaged in an aggressive program to double its research faculty by adding 400 new investigators, and to construct more outstanding research facilities to accommodate them.
