About our Research

The Department of Surgery prides itself on its many highly regarded investigators. Some faculty members focus predominantly on basic or translational research (the bench), others on clinical research (the bedside) and some are involved in both realms. More than half of our faculty members are involved in research. Our faculty hold 120 active research grants from both federal and non-federal sources. Clinical faculty design and participate on 50 clinical trials and clinical research projects.
