The University of Illinois at Chicago
is an acclaimed research institution with 15 colleges dedicated to the discovery and distribution of knowledge. The University of Illinois Hospital & Health Sciences System is one of the few academic medical centers in the U.S. with research faculty across all health sciences colleges, including medicine, nursing, dentistry, pharmacy, social work, applied health sciences, and public health. From understanding the molecular basis of disease to improving the health of communities, hospital researchers routinely collaborate with researchers at the University of Illinois’ Champaign-Urbana campus as well as physicians, nurses, and other health professionals across the health sciences colleges in order to bring the best minds to the challenges of health. This collaboration is yielding new knowledge and, as a result, new methods for advancing patient treatment and care.
