Rush’s commitment to clinical care, research, education and community outreach collectively shapes our mission to provide patients with the very best care.

Research at Rush transforms care. It gives us new understanding of how disease develops and manifests. It brings together experts from across disease areas to ask probing questions, find promising solutions and forge improbable connections. And it serves as the foundation upon which we educate tomorrow’s leaders and improve the health of our community. In our fiscal year 2013 annual report, you’ll find just a few examples of the many ways Rush’s innovative approach to research yields discoveries that are inventive, inspiring and, at times, altogether surprising.
Researchers at Rush discuss what motivates them to investigate research problems in specialties ranging from lung cancer to Parkinson's disease.
