Leading the Way!

Here at National University we are proud of our research department for leading the way in complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) research.

National University boasts many research “firsts.” We were:

  • The first chiropractic institution to establish a dedicated Patient and Research Center in 1980, and the first recipient of a $1 million private grant funding a majority of the important early basic and clinical science research in chiropractic medicine.
  • The first institution offering a chiropractic program to receive a National Institutes of Health RO1 grant, and continue to be one of the highest producers of original research in chiropractic medicine.
  • The first institution to establish a blind-peer-reviewed scientific journal for the chiropractic profession indexed by the National Library of Medicine. Today, the Journal of Manipulative and Physiological Therapeutics is the official research journal of the American Chiropractic Association, and it is one of three scientific research journals published by National University.

And there is so much more. We invite you to contact our Research Department faculty and staff for more information. If you are affiliated with our National University community and have an idea for new research, it may help to review the policies and guidelines governing new research projects.
