Health Sciences Research Institute at UC Merced

The Health Sciences Research Institute (HSRI) was established in May 2012 as the second Organized Research Unit at UC Merced and is the University's focal point for health and medical research.

With 88 faculty members across UC Merced's three schools (Engineering, Natural Sciences, and Social Sciences, Humanities & Arts), HSRI aims to foster world-renowned researchers through its work to improve the health of the people in the San Joaquin Valley and beyond.

HSRI research covers the range of health and medical research, and is organized in research clusters including:Social Science & Management Building

HSRI members are also engaged in translational research, evaluation and effectiveness research, and public health systems and services research.

San Joaquin Valley regional health issues include asthma, valley fever (coccidioidomycosis), obesity, diabetes, cancer, hypertension, heart disease, risky teen behaviors, teen tobacco use, sexually transmitted diseases, hepatitis, and many others.

The opportunities to address the growing and complex health issues of the San Joaquin Valley and beyond require inter- and multidisciplinary teams.

HSRI’s collaborative multidisciplinary research clusters and community emphasis provide an opportunity  to rapidly develop, test, and disseminate new ways of improving health and delivering healthcare.

This will help establish UC Merced as a world-renowned research university while improving the health of the people in the San Joaquin Valley.
