While we are a clinical department within the U-M Medical School, the Department of Internal Medicine is also home to more than 130 basic, translational, and clinical research faculty members. Spread across 13 divisions, our research community successfully competes for funding from national agencies, foundations, and industry sponsored projects. Our scientists are dedicated to identifying and implementing real solutions to redefine how we practice medicine. We understand that great science can dramatically transform the lives of our patients here in Michigan and beyond.   

"During 2016, the Department of Internal Medicine produced nearly 2,600 publications and was awarded more than $170 million in federal and non-federal grants, a five percent increase from the previous year. This follows on our success of 2015, when our department had more individual grants than any other department of internal medicine in the country except for the University of California, San Francisco. The future outlook for research funding remains positive with the development of several promising new initiatives" - Dr. Benjamin Margolis
