Research Opportunities

In addition to clinical training, research is a required component of the fellowship program. Throughout the fellowship, each trainee works closely with a single faculty advisor in a clinical/basic science research area of mutual interest. This one-to-one relationship provides appropriate mentoring for research project and career development.

OSU is a recipient of an NIH-funded Center for Clinical and Translational Science (CCTS) which supports high level basic and clinical science research. For more information click CCTS.   There is a ten-bed NIH-funded Clinical Research Center which enables faculty and trainees to conduct research studies in various areas, including nutrition, lipids, neuroendocrine tumors, diabetes, and osteoporosis. A list of faculty and their research interests can be viewed here. For more information on our research activities check out our Research page.

Many of the faculty members hold current NIH, other federally or privately funded research grants spanning basic science to clinical outcomes research. There are opportunities to interact with collaborating scientific faculty at Ohio State as well.
