Applied Science

Applied Science refers to the use of the scientific method and knowledge obtained via conclusions from the method to attain practical goals.

Basic Science

Basic Science helps researchers understand living systems and life processes. This knowledge leads to better ways to predict, prevent, diagnose, and treat disease.

Clinical Science

Clinical Science combines principles of medicine, chemistry, and biology and usually involves laboratory work, such as testing, evaluating, detecting, and analyzing cells or blood to evaluate and investigate medical treatments.

Community Engagement involves research that can be implemented in partnership with stakeholder groups such as patients, health service systems, or community-based organizations. Researchers design meaningful and effective community interventions that are culturally and linguistically appropriate.

Creative Scholarship

Creative Scholarship involves creating a new work from your artistic vision or reinterpreting an existing work. Research involves blending theory and practice to understand how products relate to human behavior and design processes.

Equity and Social Justice involves trying to understand and give people what they need to enjoy full, healthy lives and reach their greatest potential in the societies in which they reside.

Public Health is the science of protecting and improving the health of people and their communities by promoting healthy lifestyles, researching disease and injury prevention, and detecting, preventing, and responding to infectious diseases.
