About the 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 below 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.
The 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.
