Medical research is a vital part of the mission at the Quillen College of Medicine. Our scientists are actively researching the biological bases of medical and psychiatric disorders that reduce the quality of life of the people of our region and beyond. The faculty, staff and students of our institution are expeditiously engaged in research to develop novel treatments and cures for numerous disorders and diseases. QCOM scientists engage in research on a wide variety of medical research problems, but areas of particular focus include disorders that affect the cardiovascular system, the immune system, and the nervous system including the brain.
Another often overlooked yet critically important aspect of research at Quillen is its contribution to the education of our students. Through exposure to and engagement in our research programs, students (undergraduate, graduate, and medical students) develop their critical thinking skills, improve their ability to communicate scientific information, build self-confidence, and learn to question “medical dogma”. These important skills help them become better health professionals.
