Empowering Research Across Campus 

The Division of Research and Innovation serves researchers in every department on campus in their mission to grow the impact of research. Regardless of discipline, we believe that every faculty member is capable of finding funding and achieving national visibility for their work. Our office includes Research Development, Sponsored Programs, Research Compliance, Office of Technology Transfer, the FedEx Institute of Technology, and Animal Care Services. 

For Researchers

From strategic discussions and finding funding, to submitting proposals and patenting inventions, the first stop for all researchers on our campus is the Researchers site. Visit the site here.

Awardees of Communities of Research Scholars

Established in the fall of 2018, CoRS was created to cultivate interdisciplinary discourse and nurture the growth of research across the UofM. Each community is comprised of faculty representing multiple disciplines, perspectives and research approaches with a shared interest in exploring a common research theme. Learn more about the CoRS awardees.
