Health research at ASU ranges from understanding the causes behind Alzheimer’s disease and improving methods for predicting epileptic seizures to developing advanced biosensors, bioimaging techniques, and novel biomaterials to advance cell therapy treatments and drug delivery systems. Our research capabilities are focused and wide-ranging, from neural engineering, synthetic biology, healthcare systems analysis and modeling to health monitoring devices, human rehabilitation technologies, and biomedical informatics.

The impact of our health research is evident in our growing industry partnerships and affiliations with research institutions. A recent collaboration between the School of Informatics and Decision Systems and the Mayo Clinic Scottsdale has led to the creation of the ASU-Mayo Center for Innovative Imaging where research on novel informatics, statistics and machine learning, and systems engineering approaches is underway for improved analysis and management of radiology images and databases.

Fulton Schools researchers actively contribute to the ASU’s Office of Clinical Partnership, which consists of more than 20 external partners collaborating on health research, training, and translational discoveries. Our research network includes Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center, the Banner Health System, the Carl T. Hayden VA Medical Center, Sun Health, the CORE Institute, Translational Genomics Research Institute (TGen), Phoenix Children’s Hospital and ASU’s Biodesign Institute, to name a few.
