Scientists at Drexel University College of Medicine conduct studies in 14 major disciplines and clinical research in several subspecialties. Drexel University College of Medicine is structured so that investigators from related disciplines work together in five interdisciplinary research centers:
The Neuroscience Research Center conducts, supports, and develops basic and clinical research in all neuroscience-related disciplines, including neurosurgery, psychiatry, neurology, neuroradiology, neuropathology, neuro-ophthalmology, and neuro-otology. Neural plasticity in aging studies with emphasis on Alzheimer’s disease and strokes, child and family studies, acute spinal cord injury studies, and cryomedicine represent some of the research interests in this center.
Allegheny General Hospital is host to the headquarters of the prestigious National Surgical Adjuvant Breast and Bowel Project (NSABP) – a cooperative group engaged in the nation’s foremost research and treatment for breast and colorectal cancer. Scientists at the Allegheny Health Network Cancer Institute work with international colleagues, testing new chemoprevention strategies and other innovative concepts in cancer prevention, diagnosis, and treatment. Furthermore, research in perfecting the tools and techniques to accomplish percutaneous mastectomy has provided a quantum leap in breast cancer care.
The Cardiovascular/Pulmonary Research Center fosters the development of interdisciplinary research programs, encouraging and supporting research in cardiac, vascular, pulmonary, and renal specialties. Some of the leading projects of the center are:
