Research Areas

What's possible when leading scientists and doctors, pharmacologists and engineers, put their minds together to protect, change and save lives?

It's this expansive vision of industry-changing possibility that is guiding the organization and design of the research park at Rosalind Franklin University. By leveraging the research areas our scientists are already known for around the world, and then by aligning scientists and industry by research focus, the research park will promote research synergy and streamline the translation of discoveries into diagnostics and therapeutics.

The primary areas of research focus include:

  • Brain science 
    • Neurodegenerative diseases
    • Behavioral disorders
    • Brain function and repair
  • Genetic diseases
  • Cancer, immunology, and infection
  • Proteomics and molecular therapeutics
