Let's pick up the pace in the fight against cancer!
We are grateful for the thousands of passionate individuals, business leaders and community organizations who have collectively raised nearly $10 million through theUMass Cancer Walk & Run. The funds we raise support cancer research, clinical trials and patient care at the UMass Cancer Center.
UMass Medical School ranked 29th out of 139 U.S. medical schools in National Institutes of Health funding, according to the 2016 report from the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research. Ten academic departments at UMMS ranked in the top 50 among their peers at similarly named departments at U.S. medical schools in this important metric of research competitiveness.
Paul L. Greer, PhD, assistant professor of molecular medicine, is using the mouse olfactory system to investigate how animals take sensory input from their environment and translate those stimuli into action, with the hope of translating these discoveries into new treatments for a host of neurological disorders, including autism spectrum disorders.
The Learning & Development Department offers classes for managers and employees at UMass Medical School. Currently there are more classes being added for the Organizing, Prioritizing and Managing Your Work Training.
Four Ice Cream Socials have been scheduled throughout the UMass Medical School Campuses.
There isn’t anything that says Summer like ice cream. So, as we delve into this summer season, we invite the UMMS and UMMHC community to gather as a “thank you” celebration in appreciation for all your hard work and dedicated effort put forth this past year.
Come and enjoy time with together over ice cream and toppings. We look forward to seeing you at one of the locations!
