Welcome to the Senior Vice President for Health Sciences Research Unit website. This unit serves the University of Utah Health community by providing resources to promote discovery, innovation, and methods of enhancing translation that advance health and wellness. I invite you to take a moment to explore our website to learn more about the resources and tools that are available to faculty, the exciting research strategic initiatives to promote interdisciplinary collaboration, the upcoming events and symposia, and news and updates coming out of the research enterprise. 

The biomedical community is making major scientific advances at the discovery bench, and due to advances in technology, are poised to make even more discoveries in a broad range of areas ranging from understanding the genetic basis of rare or complex chronic diseases to learning the complex web of socio-economic and environmental factors which influence health and disease.  At U of U Health, we are blessed with a community of researchers who are passionate about improving human health.  Our work environment is conducive to the collaboration and team work required to understand basic mechanisms of disease, and to improve methods of translating scientific discoveries to favorably impacting patients’ lives in efficient and effective manner.

 I am optimistic for the opportunities the next chapter may bring, and grateful for the opportunity to support the efforts of those focused on furthering the pursuit of research excellence at U of U Health.
