During 2019 and 2020, the College of Medicine faculty were awarded nine NIH and non-federal extramural research grants in various arenas of research, including cancer, cardiovascular disease, COVID-19 and vaccine development.

CNUCOM provides support for faculty research through the internal mini-grant program. In 2021 alone, CNUCOM faculty were awarded intramural grants of almost $40,000. These start up funds are available with the expectation that faculty will take on students as mentees. Another 50% increase for mini grants has been projected in the 2021 CNUCOM budget.

Further support for grants, collaborations and capital equipment as requested by faculty is processed through the CNU Office of Research. For grant awardee and project descriptions, please click on the links in the dropdown menu on the right-hand side of the screen.
