2022 University of Memphis Research Report

Along with continued growth, this year captures the largest cohort of first-time PIs.

As a Carnegie R1 research institution, the University of Memphis is among the most prominent research institutions in the country. With the dedication of our world-class faculty across campus, achieving this designation during the COVID-19 pandemic and in only three years makes the recognition all the more meaningful and bolsters the future of the university. FY22 saw tremendous change on our campus with the exciting arrival of President Hardgrave, signifying a commitment and investment to the next chapter of success for the UofM.

Additionally, we have experienced consistent award growth across many units, and the same is true for PIs submitting proposals. Research awards remain on an upward trajectory, reinforcing the commitment of our faculty and where they are leading the university.

Finally, the Tennessee Governor and state legislature recognized and celebrated UofM’s research capabilities by approving a $50M research endowment for the University to be matched, yielding a $100M endowed foundation for future investment in the UofM to grow research more than any other time in UofM history.
