Research & Innovation

In the lab or in the clinic, University of Michigan Medical School researchers are behind many of the most important innovations of our times across the realm of cutting-edge science ranging from COVID-19 to health policy to vascular diseases and more.

We are committed to our mission of uncovering the knowledge that leads to new insights, ultimately impacting patients and their families.

Go to Office of Research

At $1.72 billion, the University of Michigan is the top public university in research spending in the United States. Our metrics show that over half a billion of that is awarded yearly to the Medical School, supporting our research strengths. Imagine what it would be like to conduct research at the laboratory bench, in the clinic, or with the community as part of our world-renowned Medical School, facilitated by the departments, centers, and institutes and our Office of Research. Students and trainees have the opportunity for mentorship from research faculty who are experts in their fields and can help you open doors to a lifetime of discovery.
