MU Biomedical Research – Of Clinical Significance

Marshall University Joan C. Edwards School of Medicine’s Biomedical Sciences research focuses on health concerns of clinical significance on a global scale, with particular attention given to the Appalachian region. Marshall’s current research projects are designed to address some of these disparities and their risk factors.

Our primary goal through biomedical sciences is to use a translational research approach (i.e. the use of laboratory research to improve clinical treatments) to help reduce the numerous health disparities of the Appalachian patient population and to improve health outcomes for our region.
