URMC Researchers showcased

During yesterday’s Super Bowl our very own University of Rochester Medical Center (URMC) ran two ads, one of which showcased the variety of medical research work being carried out by scientific investigators there. A news release put out by the University tells the story:

3,000 researchers

Approximately 3,000 people are involved in research at URMC. While they’re spread across many centers and labs and study everything from cancer and heart disease to HIV and aging, they all share the same goal: Improve patient care.

Our scientists contributed technology that led to the HPV vaccine, which protects against cervical cancer. Surfactant, which is administered routinely to premature infants to speed lung development, was approved based on extensive studies conducted at URMC. Research in stroke, muscular dystrophy, lymphoma, arthritis, autism, and many other areas holds great promise.

Research provides hope for a better life for our patients, now and in the future. To underscore the importance of science and how it makes UR Medicine stand apart, we interviewed a small sample of the thousands of individuals involved in research.
