The Maine Medical Center Research Institute supports and encourages a broad spectrum of research at Maine Medical Center ranging from basic laboratory-based research through the translational research, which works to apply basic discoveries to medical problems, to clinical research, which studies the direct application of new drugs, devices and treatment protocols to patients, to health services research which seeks to use research methods to help improve and evaluate health care delivery programs and new technologies.
Successful medical research is a complex process requiring close collaboration of basic scientists, physicians, epidemiologists and data analysts, state-of-the-art instruments, resources to protect the patients who volunteer to participate in clinical trials, and a strong commitment from the Institution. All of these elements are represented in the Maine Medical Center Research Institute.
We have world-class scientistis owrking on advanced biomedical problems,
we have been successful in bringing the benefits of new discoveries to our patients,
and we have a commitment to be one of the very best biomedical research communities.
