In addition to holding federal and other competitive grants, the Division has a substantial endowment constituting the Grainger Research Program, supporting faculty development and research initiatives. Extensive mentoring and collaborative opportunities are readily available within the Division and NUFSM.
Lurie Children’s Hospital and NUFSM are strongly committed to diversity and equity as critical to the mission of advancing excellence in academic programs, world-class research, and health programs. Our central objective is to advance the health and wellbeing of diverse populations.
