While training at Cooper University Hospital, fellows are given an opportunity to participate in clinical and basic translation research. With the help of faculty mentors, fellows develop IRB proposals, and write grants and manuscripts for publication. There are vast resources which are available to facilitate scholarly pursuits.

Cooper Research Institute

Through basic and clinical research, faculty at Cooper University Hospital are bringing scientific discoveries to life with access to cutting-edge treatments in fields such as oncology, cardiology, critical care, diabetes, and gene therapy. Cooper faculty members currently conduct pver 400 National Institutes of Health (NIH) and industry-sponsored clinical trials each year. In South Jersey, many of these are only available at Cooper. The campus now holds about 46 NIH and federal grants and nearly $30,000,000 in aggregate research funding, making it number one among the regional medical campuses in the country. Past research by Cooper faculty has led to new standards of care and novel therapies in fields such as oncology, cardiology, surgery and orthopaedics.

Coriell Institute of Medical Research

The Coriell Institute for Medical Research is an independent, not-for-profit research organization dedicated to understanding human genetic diseases and providing the highest quality genetic resources. Its affiliation with Cooper University Hospital provides an excellent opportunity to our residents to participate in a variety of basic science research.
