Research is an important part of our passion for better medicine. Our research scientists are integrated with our clinical departments for a comprehensive, collaborative approach to research. Physician/investigator support is provided through our Network Office of Research and Innovation (NORI). NORI houses the Office of Research Administration, the Office of Research Clinical Operations, the Office of Research Education, Integrity, and Monitoring, and the Research Participant Protection Office. Go to Lehigh Valley Health Network's NORI website for more information about the current research being done at LVHN.
