About Our Research

Our physicians and scientists at the Charles E Schmidt College of Medicine team up to develop innovative approaches to treat and prevent disease in Palm Beach County and throughout the world. We focus our work on both understanding basic biological mechanisms and cultivating new strategies to combat disease.

The ultimate goal of our biomedical research is to advance global health and the health of our local community in the process. Our research is focused on a wide range of issues including cardiovascular disease, stroke, cancer, genetic eye diseases, macular degeneration and cataracts, autoimmune diseases, malaria, HIV/AIDS, neurodegenerative diseases such as Parkinson’s and Alzheimer’s disease, and healthy aging. The National Institute of Health provides us with continuous, sustained funding in many of these areas.

Our faculty and students benefit from affiliations with prestigious local research institutions such as  the  Scripps Research Institute Florida,   the Max Planck Florida Institute for Neuroscience,  and  the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies, Florida.  These relationships not only further collaborative research at the college but also provide exciting and diverse opportunities for students to gain laboratory experience with world-class scientists.

Aside from those collaborations, our faculty is proud to have joined forces with industry partners to  further develop and test the effectiveness of INTERACT (Interventions to Reduce Acute Care Transfers) and provide recommendations to our federal government. Together, we are transforming research into real, practical healthcare solutions.
