WHAT WE DO
The University's research program covers a range of disciplines important to both the military and public health. Infectious diseases, trauma medicine, health maintenance, and cancer research are areas of particular strength. Researchers at USU make groundbreaking efforts in state-of-the-art and multidisciplinary fields, such as genomics, proteomics, and drug-delivery mechanisms.
We sponsor Research Days, clinical and technological seminar series, grantsmanship training, and professional development workshops. The annual Research Days is a culmination of the year-long efforts in advancing the USU research mission and celebrates the ongoing endeavors to advance the health and wellbeing of service-members and their families.
“The Office of Research supports USU in becoming a nationally recognized research institution that makes significant and positive contributions to military health and readiness, medicine, and the human condition.”
