Advancing Health Through Biomedical, Clinical and Translational Sciences

At the University of Missouri School of Medicine, you’ll find outstanding research and educational programs in biomedical, clinical and translational sciences focused specifically on translating the discoveries into community-based products, services and practices for our state and nation.

Few universities share MU’s potential for saving lives through research. More than 1,000 life scientists — all on one campus — unite in improving health by studying humans, animals, plants and the environment. Their efforts concentrate on the deadliest diseases, such as cancer and cardiovascular disease, and the most vulnerable patients, including children and the elderly.
