Resources for U of U Health Researchers

We Invest in Research Success

In these unpredictable times, we’re invested in our researchers’ success. Instead of hiring bright minds and then hoping for the best, we have mentoring programs that give them the skills they need to stand out. We award seed grants that bring new ideas to life, and provide programmatic support so that developed projects can take root and grow branches. We don’t just give our scientists a place to work; we’ve built an environment where they can thrive.
