UCLA School of Medicine

The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has in a little more than 60 years grown to become an internationally recognized leader in medical education, research, patient care and public service. It is a remarkable achievement for an institution that is among the youngest of the most elite medical schools in the country.


Research centers and institutes are among the most important ways UCLA encourages collaboration across disciplines. Every day, scientists have new ideas with the potential to expand the boundaries of human knowledge. It takes creativity and insight to pursue these raw ideas, and it takes the right support to nurture them. In addition to the vast network of research institutes and centers on campus, UCLA's largest research institutes are integral to the mission of the David Geffen School of Medicine. They provide extensive resources and information to the research community to further their understanding of the natural world.
