LECOM Research Collective
Research is a key part of the LECOM mission to prepare well-qualified healthcare professionals.
To meet the educational goals of research, the college provides laboratory space and encourages
research by faculty members and students.
The LECOM Research Collective is an
organization within the Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine. The LRC has laboratories at
the campuses in Erie and Bradenton, with varied disciplinary focuses that represent the scientific
and scholarly interests of the school and endeavors to be on the forefront of osteopathic
biomedical research. The navigation links in the LRC Labs menu at the left lead to each lab's
website, tailored to each lab's individual scope, findings and mission. This website has been
created to act as a resource of the LRC labs' findings — one that is accessible to those
interested parties both within and outside of the biomedical research community.
LECOM Office of Research is dedicated to ensuring the rights, privacy, welfare and safety of human
subjects participating in research under the auspices of LECOM. All human subject research at
LECOM, whether funded externally or not, must be in compliance with federal regulations.
Information on the Human Research Protocols adopted by LECOM are available through the browse
menu at the left.
