RESEARCH SPOTLIGHT

Greg Hicks appointed associate vice president for clinical and translational research

“I really love being a clinical researcher and helping people — and helping to start other people’s research careers, just as my mentors inspired me,” said Hicks, who currently is deputy dean of UD’s College of Health Sciences and former chair of its physical therapy program, ranked number-one in the nation. “The better we all are at doing that, at helping others to find their passion and succeed as translational researchers, the more positive change we can make for patients within the health care system.” 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?

Our students benefit from an experiential learning experience – designed towards focusing on all aspects of healthcare. Our college’s curriculum immerses students in research, simulation and clinical care. 

Combined with strategic partnerships in the Delaware community and an ever-growing Science Technology and Research (STAR) Campus, the experiences gained by our students prepare them to address all aspects of healthcare, wellness, from research and care, to the preventative and social determinants of health.
