Moving Medicine Forward
The University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) is home to more than 3,000 people dedicated to scientific research, studying common and rare illnesses, from cancer and heart disease to Parkinson’s and pandemic influenza. These efforts have led to therapies that have saved countless lives and improved human health locally, in the region, and across the globe.
Over the last five years, URMC has garnered more than $1.18 billion in biomedical research funding, landing the University in the top 26th percentile of U.S. medical centers in federal research funding. Coupled with one million square feet of state-of-the-art research space, and high-end support services and shared resources, we’re building upon this strong legacy of research every day.
