researchThe search for new knowledge and new ways to provide care has special meaning at Maine Medical Center. Our focus here is on research that has direct impact on patient care, and on more basic research that lays the groundwork for clinical advances. Our emphasis is on cancer, cardiology, and bone and mineral disease, with other important areas supported as funding allows.

The Maine Medical Center Research Institute has attained status not only as a center for biomedical research but as a catalyst for economic and academic growth in the region. An active research program is a direct benefit to our patients, bringing leading-edge treatments to Maine.

While much is carried out at the Research Institute in the neighboring town of Scarborough, clinical departments within Maine Medical Center also have research programs. For example, MMC's Emergency Department has an award-winning research division, which gives medical students a unique opportunity to develop tools for life-long learning, an understanding of how to use medical research and basic research concepts, an awareness of the importance of information management in healthcare, and the application of evidence-based medicine. Learn more about the Emergency Department's clinical research program.
