There are several major areas of research strength at Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science (RFUMS). These include: 1) neuroscience, 2) neurodegenerative disease, 3) diabetes, 4) cancer, 5) structural biology, 6) cystic fibrosis, 7) drug discovery, 8)immunology, 9) gait, balance, and movement disorders, 10) cardiac resuscitation, and 11) stem cell and regenerative medicine.  Investigators often span multiple areas.  The university facilitates research through a wide array of support programs such as 1) specialized technical support laboratories (x-ray crystallography, mass spectroscopy, electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy, electron microscopy, confocal microscopy, live cell imaging, FACS, etc), 2) internal research funding programs, 3) research incentive programs to promote and sustain faculty research, and 4) assistance with the submission of grant applications. See links below for details of ongoing research at RFUMS and descriptions of our support services.
