Focus Areas

The Rehabilitation Medicine Research Center at Mayo Clinic has three main clinical themes and three program focus areas in which physician-scientists conduct research to advance patient care.

Each clinical research theme and program focus area is led by a physician or basic research scientist whose background and research expertise brings unique insight to the Rehabilitation Medicine Research Center.

Clinical research themes

Each clinical research theme consists of several specific research groups that are disease-oriented groups (DOGs) or condition-oriented groups. Clinical researchers have access to and collaborate with dedicated researchers in the three program focus areas to answer questions and solve problems related to their patient populations.
