Serving Faculty and Staff
A primary focus of our work is to serve faculty and staff conducting research in the wide variety of research units here at Iowa State University. We do this by supporting ongoing research in areas of strategic importance to Iowa State, fostering new initiatives, and guiding technology commercialization. We work with faculty to establish collaborative research programs and centers. And, to help researchers secure federal, state, and private funding, we provide an array of administrative services and infrastructure. Check out the For Researchers section, as well as the Toolbox for Researchers, for easy access to tools, other resources, and services.
