It’s simply a fact: our faculty represent some of the best and the brightest in the medical field. 

The University of Minnesota Medical School is home to 1,600 faculty physicians and scientists and almost 1,000 residents and fellows.

Some battle Alzheimer’s disease by combating the proteins that disrupt brain function. Others develop new stem cell lines capable of being modified and transformed into heart, skin and pancreatic cells.

Some concentrate on new targeted cancer therapies. Still others unlock ways to grow new organs that will revolutionize transplantation.

All focus on training the next generation of medical professionals who will change how healthcare is delivered.
