Spotlight: Office of Research


The Emory University Department of Medicine places strong emphasis on its broad and innovative research programs. The department’s nine divisions perform basic, translational, and clinical research related to physiology, therapeutics, and disease pathogenesis. Basic scientists, clinical researchers, and clinicians work side-by-side to address fundamental problems in human disease. Their collaborative efforts enable them to take mechanistic discoveries to preclinical testing and first-in-man clinical trials. Cross-cutting programs include regenerative medicine, vaccine testing and development, immunology and inflammation, outcomes and health services research, and the molecular basis of disease.

Department of Medicine investigators study significant, clinically relevant questions from all perspectives. In fiscal year 2015, our investigators earned national and international recognition; expanded federal and foundation awards in the fields of cardiology, infectious diseases, digestive diseases, and geriatric medicine; and received a total of more than $92 million in awards.

The Office of Research sponsors a number of program and events, including a weekly “What’s Up in DOM Research?” e-newsletter, the Data Analytics and Biostatistics (DAB) Core, a grant-writing support program, a consultation program for grants and manuscripts, Research Day, Quality Day, and Blue Sky Groups.
