About Research at the University

Founded in 1925, the University of Miami, fondly known as “the U,” was South Florida’s first university. Today we are a nationally recognized research university with five campuses, 11 schools, and approximately $325 million in research activity each year. University faculty are actively engaged in research, scholarship and creative activities that span the biomedical and clinical sciences, engineering, education, psychology, marine and atmospheric sciences, ethics, the humanities, arts, music, marketing, business, and politics.

We aim to achieve our mission by:
  • Developing and maintaining a culture and infrastructure that supports research/creative activities university-wide, and promotes protection of our human and animal subjects
  • Facilitating these activities by helping our investigators identify and obtain the resources they need to succeed
  • Promoting high ethical standards and compliance with applicable policies and guidelines of our partners, the university, and the state and federal governments
  • Educating our constituency regarding opportunities, procedures, and rules/guidelines in the performance and reporting of research
  • Facilitating communication with university leadership and with investigators by providing important information and by listening to concerns
  • Helping our investigators navigate regulatory hurdles and roadblocks
  • Promoting collaborative and innovative research programs that advance our knowledge and address regional, national and global societal needs
Our core values include:
  • Accountability
