Message from the Vice President for Research, Dr. Mark Kortepeter

kortepeter bioThank you for visiting the USU Office of the Vice President for Research (VPR) website. The USU mission is to educate, train and prepare uniformed services health professionals, officers and leaders to directly support the Military Health System, the National Security, and National Defense Strategies of the U.S and the readiness of our Armed Forces.

VPR supports the USU mission by coordinating, initiating, and supporting research related to military health needs based on a holistic framework of health that includes prevention, resilience, treatment, recovery, rehabilitation, reintegration into military duty as well as dual benefit outcomes that will improve civilian health.

VPR staff support USU faculty and student research by offering pre- and post-award services, including regulatory compliance reviews and approvals, as well as core facility resources.

I hope you find our new website easy to navigate, and that you enjoy learning more about research at USU and how VPR can help you achieve your research goals.
