featured discovery banner 2

As part of our ongoing efforts to recognize and celebrate the impressive science and discoveries taking place within the School of Medicine every day, we have created a Featured Discovery initiative. It highlights our faculty members’ important research published in prominent science journals.

Featured Discovery helps us share our colleagues’ research with each other and those we serve. Recipients are chosen based on these parameters:

  • current faculty member within the School of Medicine
  • research considered a high-impact discovery
  • research aligned with our missions
  • research demonstrates collaboration/team science

You can submit nominations for a colleague or yourself.
