Research and Discovery

The Office of the Vice President for Research provides access to resources and services to support researchers throughout the conduct of research and discovery. Our aim is to foster a research culture that drives innovation, collaboration and recognition of our researchers.

Leading the Field

Our researchers conduct basic research with the goal of taking their research through the translational process and putting discoveries into practice. In many cases, research is disseminated into clinical studies on diseases, disorders and conditions to improve the health and wellness of a range of patient populations, including historically underrepresented Hispanic minorities.
