Challenge Areas

The Morgridge Institute for Research is dedicated to the vision of solving major challenges to human health by serving as an interdisciplinary research center and a collaborative hub that enables investigators to address and answer fundamental biomedical questions. This theme involves creating a chain of opportunity that effectively moves biomedical discoveries from the bench tops of researchers to the bedsides of patients – from the point of discovery to application.

At the Morgridge Institute, specific challenge areas of research will serve as platforms to realize this strategic vision: Regenerative BiologyVirology and Medical Devices.

Our team has worked with directors of several challenge areas to develop educational resources that better connect educators and the general public to the Morgridge Institute’s cutting-edge research.
