The mission of the COMR’s Office of Research is to increase student and faculty research productivity by providing support, research opportunities, programs, and funding for students and faculty. Although research is not currently a requirement for medical students, the number of our students conducting research has grown to 80.9% in 2019. We have many programs that support students, including the James Scholar Program, the Student Travel Award, and the Summer Craig Fellowship Program.
Scholarly work is vital to further scientific knowledge and many of our faculty are involved in research. We provide not only assistance with study design and statistical analyses, but can also provide internal funding for pilot projects and bridge funding to keep labs running between funding from federal agencies. Here you will information about all of the resources offered. We invite you meet our faculty and staff and to learn about all our office has to offer.
