We're constantly thinking of new ways to make things better

UCLA is consistently ranked in the top 15 within the United States in NIH funding for research. Our faculty are always hard at work developing new and innovative projects as well as involving themselves in scholarly activities that will help better understand diverse problems such as childhood diseases, healthcare needs, and social determinants in health.

Publications

Our UCLA Med-Peds faculty members are highly involved in contributing their expertise with other professionals, researching diverse topics and publishing their findings to numerous medical journal societies such as the New England Journal of Medicine (NEJM) and the Journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics. We feel that this is important to help our faculty as well as residents learn more about medicine and keep up-to-date with the latest information on epidemics, techniques and regimines utilized by our vast medical community. Below you will find articles our UCLA Med-Peds faculty have published throughout the years. Please feel free to take a look and read about the research our faculty have been involved in.
