21st-century science takes a village
The biomedical challenges of the 21st Century will be solved by scientific communities – networks of scientists with common interests but diverse skills and expertise.
In order to align our research enterprise with this scientific landscape, The David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA has established six Research Themes to stimulate interaction between UCLA’s top scientists and clinicians. These outstanding researchers are dedicating their careers to the same problems but have historically had little interaction due to relics of 20th-century University organizational structure.
Under the umbrella of the Research Themes, UCLA scientists and clinicians are doing pioneering research for the benefit of humanity.

The UCLA scientists and clinicians in these themes are expanding the boundaries of human knowledge and developing the next generation of treatments and cures in order to alleviate human suffering.
