Friends and Colleagues,

In academic medicine, the very essence of the UNLV School of Medicine, education, research and clinical care are combined to provide the best possible medical experience -- where cutting edge technologies and the latest resources and therapies are incorporated into compassionate quality care. When it comes to medical advancements through research in laboratories, at the bedside, and in the community, academic physicians in the U.S. lead the way. In today’s feature, we discuss some of our research accomplishments and highlight our recent Second Annual UNLV School of Medicine Research Forum as well as a workshop on the conduct of clinical trials -- both directed by our vice dean of research, Dr. Parvesh Kumar.
