A Research Career at Geisinger
Geisinger Research pursues an ambitious agenda with the long term goal of directly impacting the health of our patients. A unique aspect of Geisinger research is that, unlike traditional academic approaches, scientists are integrally connected to the clinical enterprise. This facilitates interdisciplinary team-based collaborations to address clinically relevant questions.
Research at Geisinger spans multiple disciplines. The three research centers-the Sigfried and Janet Weis Center for Research, the Geisinger Center for Health Research, and the Geisinger Center for Clinical Studies - are home to internationally-renowned investigators with expertise in epidemiology, molecular and cellular biology, rural health, genomics, healthcare information technology, development of new healthcare models and clinical trials management. Research in clinical divisions addresses disease-specific initiatives and provides sites for clinical trials. Major research initiatives include genomic medicine, development of new models of care, epidemiological and effectiveness studies, e-initiatives, and clinical trials.
