Faculty Research

The faculty at TUSM excels not only in transmitting the knowledge, skills, and caring attitudes required for a life in medicine, but they also contribute to that knowledge as leaders of research in a wide variety of basic science and clinical fields. A medical education at TUSM would not be complete without its vital research community. With schools of medicine, biomedical sciences, nutrition, dental medicine and veterinary medicine, Tufts offers unparalleled opportunities for interdisciplinary cooperation in health sciences education and research. The understanding and appreciation of medical research is considered an essential component of the curriculum.

Some of the ways TUSM supports its faculty members involved in research:

Research Days are series of events hosted by the Office of the Vice Provost to showcase outstanding research at Tufts, both for our own community as well as potential industry collaborators. Previous Research Days had focused Tufts’ strengths in topics such as  Infectious disease and pathogens, Cardiovascular disease, obesity and diabetes, and Translational research: applying discovery.

The Office of Educational Affairs (OEA) administers a Medical Education Research Program lending faculty assistance and support with grant opportunities, international dissemination of projects, the IRB process and  more. Learn more about OEA educational research:
