Innovative and expansive, research at Touro explores a wide range of human knowledge and disciplines.
With the oversight of the Office of the Senior Vice President for Research Affairs, our faculty have uncovered the secret lives of prehistoric mollusks in Jordan, broken new ground on the use of Marijuana in the treatment of Parkinson's symptoms, and brought to light forgotten heroes of Nazi-occupied Europe. They present at conferences around the world and publish frequently.
And scholarly ambition isn’t limited to faculty. Touro students have opportunities and resources to conceptualize and pursue their own research projects. Undergraduate and graduate students are in the field and the community looking at the behavioral risk of diabetes in the Orthodox community, researching bone loss in periodontitis, and investigating less invasive techniques for chronic subdural hematoma.
At Touro, each individual professor and student is encouraged to ask their own questions. We help them find answers.
