Faculty, staff and students at LSU Health Shreveport are actively engaged in research in a variety of biomedical areas, with concentrations in cancer, cardiovascular sciences, virology and neuroscience. It is a core part of our institution's mission. Research on campus runs the gamut from in the lab to more translational research and testing the latest treatments in clinical trials.

The School of Graduate Studies helps to train future scientists, and our Centers of Excellence further help elevate our institution's research portfolio.

The Office of Research helps support these endeavors and is comprised of the Office for Sponsored Programs, Research Development, Technology Transfer, Human Research Protections Program (HRPP), the Institutional Review Board (IRB), and the Research Core Facility.
