Photo of a research The Price is Right on the Cutting Edge
The Price Institute of Surgical Research and its seven laboratories are committed to bringing the latest surgical advances from the bench to the bedside. Our investigators remain on the cutting edge of improving surgical techniques and medical therapies for a variety of diseases and conditions affecting the surgical patient.

Shedding New Light
Price researchers continue to shed new light on our understanding of tissue injury resulting from ischemia, the causes of infection, the genetic predisposition underlying the development of inflammatory bowel disease, earlier diagnosis of a variety of cancers, and how to improve microsurgical techniques for reconstructive hand surgery, among other areas.

Work in progress concerning both the underlying causes of infection in humans and the body's defense against infection places the Institute among the world's leaders in these investigations.

  • Research fellows at the Digestive Surgery Research Laboratory are involved in groundbreaking genetic research relating to colorectal cancer and inflammatory bowel disease, which together affect hundreds of thousands of Americans every year. Our research fellows use the latest technology such as gene chips to try to identify the cause of these disorders.
  • Direct application of high energy-phosphates to wounds and ischemic tissues provides promise of a new therapeutic approach to treat a wide variety of clinical problems, which has received substantial support from the National Institutes of Health.
  • The Microsurgery Laboratory is world-renowned for its advances in microsurgical technique, as well as for its educational commitment to teaching microsurgery to generations of hand and orthopedic surgeons.
  • Additional research related to fertility problems, facial transplantation, and the metabolic effects of infection continues to receive distinguished recognition in research forums nationwide and abroad.

Premiere Facilities
Located in the Medical-Dental Research Building in the heart of downtown Louisville, the Institute offers an opportunity for comprehensive research in all surgical areas.

Our state-of-the-art research laboratories include Reconstructive Surgery, Digestive Surgery, Surgical Infection Laboratory, Trauma, Pediatric Surgery, and Surgical Oncology.

The Price Institute also houses the Division of Thoracic and Cardiovascular Surgery's Tissue Ischemia and Energy Metabolism Laboratory.

Outstanding Work
Price investigators receive funding from both the private and public sectors—including the National Institutes of Health and industry. Our local hospital partners—University of Louisville Hospital, Jewish Hospital, and Kosair Children's Hospital—provide generous ongoing support that help ensure that our research activities grow and develop in the future.

We invite you to learn more about the exciting research taking place at the Price Institute.
