Translating Knowledge To The Bedside Through Research
Medical research drives innovation in technology, treatment and process. Research is a top priority of the Department of Internal Medicine. Currently ranked 44th based on the most recent figures on National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding, the Department’s goal is to move into the top thirty Departments of Internal Medicine. This year total extramural research funding was approximately $28 million. Of this, approximately $17.6 million was Federal funding, with $7 million from foundations and other sources, and $3.3 million from industry. The Department is actively seeking to increase extramural research funding from multiple fronts.
Research relies on intellectual capital. Department faculty members play vital roles in major interdisciplinary research programs at Wake Forest, including the Center for Human Genomics, J. Paul Sticht Center on Aging and Rehabilitation, the WFU Comprehensive Cancer Center, the Diabetes Research Center, and the General Clinical Research Center.
