Lead Biomedical Discovery and Transform Health Care

Lead Biomedical Discovery and Transform Health Care

The most exciting period in the history of biomedical discovery and health care is before us — and University of Utah Health is among those leading the way


When it comes to health care, it doesn’t get any better than University of Utah Health. That’s not hubris. It’s conviction. And fact.

We’ve been ranked among the nation’s top 10 academic medical centers for nine years in a row (Vizient). For the past five years, we have been ranked the No. 1 hospital in Utah (U.S. News & World Report).

Our excellence is driven by world-class research and discovery.

For well over a half-century, University of Utah Health scientists have been at the forefront of medical breakthroughs — from securing the nation’s first NIH grant, to seeding the Human Genome Project, to developing scientific practices that improve care for millions of patients worldwide.

The possibilities are virtually limitless. With unique resources like the Utah Center for Genomic Innovation and the Utah Population Database, revolutionary biomedical technologies, preventions, treatments, and cures are within reach, and only in Utah.

That’s our future, and it’s unfolding right now at University of Utah Health.

Here’s How You Can Help

The following sampling of campaign priorities will advance biomedical innovation and transform health care.
