Ideas to Impact
We match external sponsor interests with faculty research expertise and university resources.
Participation in research is a vital part of the student experience at the UO.
Research at the University of Oregon
The impact of University of Oregon research and innovation is all around you.
Millions of American schoolchildren use educational materials developed here. Faculty are creating new ways to treat disease and prevent injury. The UO pioneered research on risk perception and psychic numbing. The first cloning of a vertebrate — the zebrafish — happened right here, dramatically increasing global understanding of genetic mutation. We study languages and cultures to learn from the past in order to create a more equitable future for all people. Sportswear has gotten a lot more inclusive for every type of body. And we’re just getting started.
The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation provides the necessary scaffolding to catalyze and facilitate groundbreaking research, scholarship, and creative activity at the UO.
Within our network of centers and institutes, we work across disciplines to expand the boundaries of knowledge and develop innovative solutions to global challenges.
