Research is the lifeblood of any medical school - keeping the faculty at the forefront of new knowledge so that they can impart that knowledge to students and offer the most effective treatments to patients. At the Brody School of Medicine, we have major research programs targeting diabetes, cardiovascular disease, cancer, neurological disorders and infectious diseases, among others.

The Clinical Trials Office facilitates the evaluation of promising new treatments among patients who desire access to them. Our research programs focus on the health concerns of eastern North Carolina.
