Good Company
The Price Institute enjoys a unique collaborative environment with neighboring hospitals and academic partners, including, the Jewish Hospital Cardiovascular Innovation Institute, James Graham Brown Cancer Center, and others.

These cooperative programs allow faculty, fellows, and students the opportunity to work one-on-one with leading investigators in Louisville. We also foster collaborative research with universities worldwide and biomedical device companies.

Facilities & Resources
With 8,000 square feet of laboratory space, our investigators have the technological edge they need to conduct groundbreaking research. Using state-of-the-art equipment and an operating room—as well as facilities available at the Price and at other sites within the University—they employ the latest technology to carry out their research.

Price faculty, fellows, and students obtain the latest information through access to over 3,500 journals and online publications through the Kornhauser Library.

Select Options
The Price Institute selects outstanding research fellows from the United States and abroad who work closely with faculty at the University of Louisville and its local academic partners. The Price Research Fellowship provides complete funding for surgeons-in-training to pursue full-time basic research.

The Ferguson Fellowship provides funding for a second full-time graduate researcher selected from young surgeons-in-training.

In addition, we regularly host visiting professors and scholars from across the country and around the world who continue to add to the breadth and depth of our program.

We invite you take advantage of the unique research opportunities at the Price Institute.
