The Vice President for Research

Mission

The Office for the Vice President for Research supports University of Memphis faculty's scholarship of discovery and innovation across our campuses. We work to promote research and creative activities by focusing on interdisciplinary scholarship, facilitating partnerships, from local to international, and enabling our faculty to move the products of their work from the laboratory, classroom, field and studio to the community. We accomplish these goals by strategically investing our personnel and resources in efficient and effective infrastructure, policies and administration.

Greetings from the Vice President

Welcome to the offices of the Vice President of Research. Hopefully, you have just read our mission statement and, like most mission statements, it promises quite a lot. Here at the University of Memphis, however, having a significant impact is exactly what we are attempting to do. In Memphis and throughout the Mid-South this university is committed, through its student-focused educational programs, our faculty's endeavors in research and creative activities, our partnerships with the corporate community, local, regional and federal governments, foundations and citizens groups, to serve and benefit our region, our nation and our world.

Our research development and structure includes my office, the Office of Sponsored Programs, the Office of Technology Transfer, the Integrated Microscopy Center, Environmental Health and Safety and the university's Animal Care operation. On our associated web pages you will find a broad range of services for faculty research and the arts; from our development officers supporting faculty project generation from the initial idea, through the building of collaborative research teams, all the way to proposal submission and project initiation and conduct. We are also responsible for faculty incentive programs, seed funding for research, research policy on campus, the responsible conduct of research and the broad array of compliance requirements we now face.

We engage in regular strategic planning with our faculty, department chairs, deans, provost and president to make sure that our research directions are consistent with our university's strengths, the priorities of our region and current national research priorities. We strive to align our investments in research with those priorities. Those investments also focus on the development of strong, interdisciplinary research groups and the support systems that our scientists must have to succeed in today's complex and competitive research environment. Finally, in our Office of Technology Transfer, we enable faculty to identify the potential commercial value of their research products, and where appropriate, to bring those products to the marketplace.

I hope the information on our website will be helpful to you but if you have any questions please contact us.

—Dr. Andrew Meyers, Vice President for Research
