Harbor-UCLA Medical Center belongs to the people of this community. While we are dedicated to best-in-class trauma care, we also believe in the importance of trauma research. Research has been instrumental in the evolution of trauma systems. One of the key elements of Level I trauma centers include: The ability to operate an organized teaching and research effort to help direct new innovations in trauma care. Harbor-UCLA Medical Center works in partnership with the Lundquist Institute for Biomedical Innovation, an independent non-profit biomedical research organization. The Lundquist Institute's research focuses on both funded and non-funded research. Funding sources include: grants from the NIH and other government entities, Industry and teaching contracts and royalties, as well as private donors and other non-profit foundations.
