Areas of Research

Biomedical clinical research is a major component of Cedars-Sinai Medical Center's mission and is critical to its commitment of maintaining excellence in patient care.

Cedars-Sinai investigators are currently conducting 916 clinical research projects through the Burns and Allen Research Institute. These encompass basic, translational, clinical, and health services research and cover the entire spectrum of disease investigation, including molecular genetics, biochemical analysis and disease-based areas such as cancer, cardiovascular disorders and neurosciences. With our bench-to-bedside approach to clinical research, some of our work leads to paradigm shifts and dramatic changes in patient care.
