Our faculty, students and staff collaborate across disciplines and schools, creating new knowledge to address some of the world’s most challenging problems.
Student research projects are supported by faculty mentors and other university resources. Faculty successfully win backing for their research from many sources, including the federal government, state governments, corporations, foundations, nonprofit agencies, individuals and the university itself.
We encourage and support your innovative research interests and entrepreneurial efforts. We are driven to translate these discoveries into knowledge, technologies and programs that benefit society.
