Research

BMS faculty are united in their quest for scholarship. While the research programs of the BMS faculty are varied, ranging from functional anatomy and basic cell molecular biology to cardiovascular physiology, behavioral disorders, developing model organ systems and research in medical education, they overlap in many experimental technologies and the fundamental principle of performing hypothesis driven investigations. The strength of our research programs is recognized by funding support from the National Institutes of Health, American Heart Association, National Science Foundation and other national and regional funding agencies.

Our research laboratories are the training grounds for UA COM-Phoenix medical student as well as undergraduate students from the ASU Tempe, Downtown Phoenix, and West Campuses. BMS faculty also participate in several ASU graduate programs, with students performing their Ph.D. research under our mentorship. A UA COM-Phoenix graduate program in Translational Biomedical Sciences leading to the Ph.D. is being planned for launch in the fall of 2013.
