At UT Southwestern we advance understanding of the causes of disease, along with discoveries related to their treatment and prevention, through a world-renowned research program dedicated to moving discoveries in biomedical science from the research bench to the patient’s bedside.
Our legacy of applied discovery continues at the William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital. Designed to integrate the process and fruits of discovery into patient care, the facility has more than 35,000 square feet of space dedicated to research and learning.
Every patient care floor has space to support clinical research – areas where patients, faculty, staff, and others can participate in cutting-edge research projects, and where patients who need more than standard therapies can have access to the most advanced efforts to create new, more effective therapies for their conditions.
In addition, conference rooms with interactive whiteboard technology and videoconferencing capabilities enable care teams to gather and confer on cases with other experts at UT Southwestern or anywhere in the world.
The Patient and Family Resource Center allows patients and family members to research specific conditions, and interactive displays feature key discoveries made by UTSW faculty throughout the years.
