Brown’s trademark dedication to multidisciplinary research and scholarship is fostering discoveries in brain science, genetics and genomics, cell biology, ecology, and more.
Brown holds steadfast to the belief that the most significant medical advances of our time will occur in translational research, where basic science discoveries generated in laboratories lead to innovations in patient care in hospitals.
Brown and its affiliated teaching hospitals are ideal incubators for research that span the distance between the laboratory and the patient. Never before in Brown’s history has research in the life sciences been so dynamic. Driven by external funding that has more than doubled since 1999, the research enterprise at The Warren Alpert Medical School and its affiliated hospitals attracts nearly $130 million annually.
The Division of Ophthalmology is committed to creating an academic environment that emphasizes clinical and basic science research.
