Intellectual, dynamic atmospheres that attract outstanding researchers interested in solving complex problems of biomedicine.
Research institutes, centers and programs consolidate the expertise of physicians, scientists, statisticians, epidemiologists, engineers and other research professionals from across the University.
Research at the Keck School of Medicine attains a level of critical mass within its research institutes. Built on faculty excellence, innovation and collaboration, and defined both by a physical space and research vision, the research institutes provide a place for in-depth, integrative studies.
Centers and Programs
The centers are housed within the academic departments, research institutes with departmental status, or the office of research advancement. Some have a physical presence while others are virtual centers. All are designed to leverage the full-spectrum of collegial opportunities and resources available across the schools of USC. All offer a lively intellectual environment that fosters creative, innovative approaches to research.
Research-Oriented Academic Departments
Directing the studies of medical students, graduate students, interns, residents and fellows, the 24 research-oriented basic science and clinical departments form the organizational backbone of the Keck School’s missions in research, education, patient care and community service.
