EVMS is the largest biomedical research institution in southeastern Virginia. More than 100 EVMS faculty members are engaged in basic and clinical research focused in areas where the community has pressing needs.

Innovative research has brought EVMS to the forefront of groundbreaking discoveries—from the pioneering of in vitro fertilization in America by the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine, to the recognition of new cancer detection and treatment methods at the Leroy T. Canoles Jr. Cancer Research Center and the progress being made toward bringing us one step closer to a cure for diabetes at The EVMS Strelitz Diabetes Center.

EVMS and Sentara Healthcare researchers are also advancing discoveries in healthcare analytics, population health, and community health disparities through collaborations with the new EVMS-Sentara Healthcare Analytics and Delivery Science Institute.

We continually strive to enhance our research enterprise in order to improve the health of the people of Hampton Roads and beyond.
