DMU's growing research enterprise

The Office of Research strives to develop the University as a cultivator of distinctive faculty and student researchers who discover and disseminate new knowledge.

University faculty and students work closely together on a wide variety of research projects. DMU maintains laboratories for basic, clinical and applied research. Every day, dedicated faculty, staff and students create and apply knowledge as they work to provide solutions to some of the world’s most pressing health problems.

DMU researchers are attracting an increasing number of external research grants, including from the National Institutes of Health, National Science Foundation and National Institute of Justice. The annual DMU Research Symposium draws hundreds of students and scientists for an exciting day of poster presentations, oral abstracts and nationally recognized keynote speakers.


“The pandemic reminded me of where I come from. It added to my motivation to become a physician. It’s made me think about ways I could incorporate research as a physician. It’s really a motivating factor.”
