Discovery and Innovation at University of Utah Health celebrates today’s scientists at University of Utah Health who are carrying on a tradition of field-changing discoveries and high impact innovation.
The digital collection is intended to raise awareness of the world-class research that is currently being done at U of U Health. The research projects within the collection were chosen by U of U Health basic, clinical and translational science department chairs based on their scientific rigor and influence. New discoveries will be added through a vetted process on an annual basis.
“The past five years have been an exciting time for the basic sciences and the U of U community, and this document is a ‘living archive’ of the major discoveries, innovations, advances, and contributions made each year,” says Wesley Sundquist, PhD, chair of the Department of Biochemistry and one of the organizers of the project. His own research team’s pioneering work understanding the mechanisms of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is leading to new approaches to combating AIDS and is featured in the collection.
