Researchers Toolkit

Our research and innovation programs focus on prevention, health monitoring and rehabilitation. We have more than 120 faculty members in five different departments who collaborate on research programs that address everything from cardiovascular health to neurological diseases to orthopedics to aging to pediatrics and so much more. We collaborate across our University and with external partners — in the health sciences and an array of other disciplines. We also emphasize the importance of ‘education as research’ and seek better ways to develop a workforce for today’s healthcare; we find better and more innovative ways to teach students and prepare them for careers. Our long term goal is to contribute to a ‘Healthy Delaware’ and develop best practices that advance healthcare across the nation and across the globe.

Never miss a thing.
