Research That Drives Results

Research in the College of Health Sciences focuses on nearly every aspect of patient care, including prevention, rehabilitation, outcomes and health monitoring. With more than 120 faculty members across six departments as well as other programs, Health Sciences fosters collaboration on research programs that address cardiovascular health, neurological diseases, aging, symptom science and more. Collaboration is not limited to the College of Health Sciences – we work across the University and with external partners on research endeavors that are funded by multiple agencies and organizations, including the National Institutes of Health.

Our research labs also provide an opportunity for students to learn firsthand how research influences care. As we seek ways to develop the next generation of healthcare leaders, we also find more innovative ways to teach students and prepare them for their highly skilled careers. Our goal is to contribute to a healthy Delaware and develop best practices that advance healthcare across the nation and across the globe.


The CHS College Research Committee is pleased to invite submissions for the 2023 CHS Summer Scholarship Program and the Maggie E. Neumann Health Sciences Research Fund.



Dedicated to conducting first-rate research that spans across a variety of research topics, our interdisciplinary labs engage faculty and students from across the university. There is unique research going on in each of our departments.
