2. Harvard Medical School - Research Innovation fuels discovery at Harvard Medical School, where more than 11,000 faculty members work to alleviate suffering caused by disease.
This work takes place on the School’s Boston campus and across the metropolitan area at 17 affiliated hospitals and research institutes. Faculty members collaborate across the community, pooling resources and expertise to tackle tough problems ranging from understanding the root causes of cancer to developing therapies and interventions; from understanding the rising costs of health care to developing delivery systems to under served populations. The ultimate goal is to translate discoveries into medicines that will eradicate disease and improve health worldwide.
3. Harvard-MIT Health Sciences and TechnologyGraduate Education Program in Space Life Sciences
NSBRI's Graduate Education Program in Space Life Sciences is conducted jointly at Texas A&M University and Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) through the Harvard-MIT Division of Health Sciences and Technology. Students in these programs work toward a Ph.D. that focuses on space life sciences.
The program is developing modules to strengthen current graduate curricula at these two institutions enabling students to experience advanced courses in biomedical science and engineering, specifically as these fields relate to the space program. Once fully developed, it is anticipated that the educational modules will be applicable to accredited doctoral programs across the nation.
4. University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA) - David Geffen School of Medicine The medical school today has more than 2,000 full-time faculty members, almost 1,300 residents, more than 750 medical students and almost 400 Ph.D. candidates. The UCLA Medical Center has been ranked "Best in the West" by U.S. News and World Report's annual survey of the best hospitals in America for fourteen consecutive years. The medical school is ranked ninth in the country in research funding from the National Institutes of Health and third in the United States in research dollars from all sources.
5. University of Oxford - Medical Sciences Division - Research Oxford Medicine is at the leading edge across an unrivalled spectrum of research through to clinical practice.
We have the unique advantage of being able to draw on extraordinary quality and depth in all key disciplines – from genes to molecules,to systems and populations. This gives our scientists and clinicians the freedom to innovate, to discover and to collaborate towards ground breaking developments. These collaborations stretch far beyond medicine and embrace colleagues from across the University in engineering, information technology, ethics, economics, philosophy and biochemistry to name but a few. Oxford’s extraordinary depth across these subjects brings opportunities that few, if any, medical institutions can match.
6. Yale University - School of Medicine - Research Yale researchers have introduced countless medical and health advances over the last century, including the first success with antibiotics in the United States and the first use of chemotherapy to treat cancer. University scientists have been responsible for the identification of Lyme disease and the discovery of genes responsible for high blood pressure, osteoporosis, dyslexia, and Tourette's syndrome, among other disorders. Early work on the artificial heart and the creation of the first insulin pump took place at Yale, as did seminal discoveries about how the cell and its components function at the molecular level. Today, research activities take place in a wide range of departments, programs, and centers.
