Research Facilities

The School of Medicine (SOM) is situated on the eastern edge of the University campus and includes the University Hospital, the Eccles Medical Library, the Eccles Institute of Human Genetics, the Biopolymers Research Building, the Wintrobe Research Building, the Moran Eye Center, the Huntsman Cancer Institute and Hospital, and the newly opened Emma Eccles Jones Medical Research Building.

The School of Medicine operates core facilities designed to provide the latest biomedical techniques to investigators. Examples of services these core facilities provide include DNA sequencing, genomics, peptide and oligonucleotide synthesis, mass spectrometry, both electron and fluorescence microscopy, microarray, and fluorescence activated cell sorting, and a centralized zebrafish core.

This wide variety of research brings many tangible and intangible benefits to the school and its students. These benefits include an enlarged faculty for classroom teaching in all aspects of medicine, worldwide contacts for the faculty that enhance and broaden the educational program, opportunities for student participation in research either during summer fellowships or the post-sophomore research years, and significant contributions to the advancement of scientific knowledge.
