Office of Research
Each fiscal year, the University of Tennessee Health Science Center faculty and staff receive nearly $85 million in research funding, including support from National Institutes of Health grants and private foundations.
Advancing research and economic development is at the core of the University of Tennessee Health Science Center's mission. Research funding has directly contributed to UTHSC's long record of accomplishments in basic science, applied clinical and translational research, and public health, allowing us to continue our contributions to the health of the Memphis-area community. Through collaborative relationships with health care partnerships like St. Jude Children's Research Hospital and Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, we are well-positioned to pave the way for innovative patient-centered research and development with a clinical and translational focus.
