Office of Research
I want to welcome you personally to the Office of Research in the College of Health Sciences. The College of Health Sciences at the University of Kentucky is committed to building an internationally recognized research enterprise.

Current projects include:
All of our projects have a strong translational component such that research will lead to novel intervention and rehabilitation strategies to improve health and function by reducing illness and disability.
I invite you to take a few moments and browse this section of the CHS website to meet some of the great people we work with, and see some of the exciting work we're doing.
