Our Mission

The overall mission of the Research Office is to support the research enterprise of the College of Medicine–Phoenix, stimulating all types of research and growing the sponsored projects portfolio by providing all forms of research infrastructure and resources. Our Research Cores are a direct reflection of that mission in as much as they provide centralized access to specialized, state-of-the art and high end instrumentation, with expert scientific leadership for experimental design, training and analysis to meet the needs of the research community.
