Office of Research and Graduate Education
Biomedical SciencesWe are a dynamic department with both basic science academic and clinical responsibilities. Our mission is to serve the needs of the School of Medicine, the Huntington Tri-State community and West Virginia through excellence in research, teaching, and patient care.
Basic science faculty participate in the Biomedical Sciences program of interdisciplinary research and graduate student education. Clinical faculty collaborate with both clinicians and basic scientists in all departments to provide interpretation of histological and pathological studies.
Clinical & Translational SciencesThe Department of Clinical and Translational Science (DCTS) was created to foster collaboration and enrichment among clinicians and basic scientists. Permanent and joint-faculty work together within an integrated structure to advance research and therapy options for Central Appalachia.
DCTS is the academic home for the Appalachian Clinical Translational Science Institute (ACTSI) at Marshall University, the Marshall Clinical Research Center and Marshall Clinical Informatics that provides support and resources to researchers, clinicians and patient advocates working to improve the health of the people of Appalachia.
