The Forefront is the science, health and wellness news website for the University of Chicago Medicine, the Division of Biological Sciences, and the Pritzker School of Medicine. The site features the latest news, research, clinical treatment advances, multimedia content and interviews with our physicians, scientists, researchers and other clinicians.
From innovative treatments for cancer, heart disease, digestive diseases and neurological disorders to the far-reaching potential of basic science research using big data, genetics and the microbiome, The Forefront chronicles how UChicago Medicine is advancing the boundaries of science, medicine, health and wellness.
Science Life, UChicago Medicine’s former website about scientific research and discovery, has been merged within The Forefront as a dedicated channel where we will continue to cover the latest advances in clinical and scientific research. Many of the most recent articles from Science Life have been migrated to The Forefront; the rest will remain as an archive at sciencelife.uchospitals.edu.
UChicago Medicine news releases also are posted on The Forefront, and information about the media relations team is listed here.
The Forefront represents the first phase in our project to redesign and rebuild the main UChicago Medicine website, which can be found at uchospitals.edu and includes our physician finder directory, along with information about specific treatments and services. The Forefront and uchospitals.edu will be merged into a single, integrated UChicago Medicine website in the fall of 2018.
For general inquiries about The Forefront, please contact William “Skip” Hidlay, Vice President, Chief Communications and Marketing Officer.
