About the Division


The FSU College of Medicine has a dynamic research agenda in biomedical science, autism, behavioral sciences and social medicine, clinical research, geriatrics, family and rural health, and patient safety, among other areas.

Researchers in the college's interdisciplinary department of biomedical sciences focus on the human genome across the spectrum of the medical sciences. Aging and neuroscience are among the topics of special emphasis in the college's research program.

As a Carnegie I Research Institution, the university provides a rich research environment. In addition to collaborating with basic science and psychology faculty from FSU's College of Arts & Sciences, medical school researchers share resources and expertise with the School of Computational Science & Information Technology, the Pepper Institute on Aging & Public Policy, and the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory.

Research Advisory Committee (RAC)

The FSU College of Medicine (CoM) has adopted policies for carrying out human subjects research by faculty, staff, students and others affiliated with the College. The policies establish a centralized, faculty-based review process for CoM-affiliated human subjects research. The CoM Research Advisory Committee (RAC) is responsible for carrying out the research policies and review process. The RAC is composed of faculty members from across the CoM, including each Department, to represent the College’s diverse research environment. For further information.
