RIM: Research and Research Education

Executive Dean’s Message

Every day faculty, staff, and students at the Leonard M. Miller School of Medicine at the University of Miami rigorously pursue medical breakthroughs. Miller School investigators bridge diverse disciplines and collaborate with campuses across the U, as well as with other institutions and corporate partners, to bring research from bench to bedside and back. Our researchers are making rapid progress in our labs and clinical trials, working to eradicate devastating illnesses like HIV/AIDS, cancer and diabetes using methodologies including stem cells and genetic mapping.

Neurological disorders, impairments to vision, and issues related to substance abuse and mental health are other key scientific areas that our investigators are tackling. Our research touches lives at every age—from the tiniest newborns to seasoned centenarians in need of better treatments, cures, and new discoveries to end pain and suffering.

All members of the Office of Research and Research Education – RIM – stand ready to assist all Miller School investigators with their research. Let us help you find the next methods of prevention, treatments and cures.
