UArizona Research, Innovation & Impact

The Office for Research, Innovation and Impact advances the world-class research enterprise at the University of Arizona, a top-ranking public institution with over $955M in annual research expenditures. Our bold, forward-thinking innovators are focused on transformational discoveries and inventions that address the world’s most complex, pressing challenges.

We support researchers with resources, training, and specialized facilities, and foster collaboration across disciplines through university institutes and centers.

By providing hands-on research opportunities, direct access to faculty and professional mentorship, and programs that help encourage an entrepreneurial mindset, we prepare students to leave UArizona and thrive.

Through an unwavering commitment to our land-grand mission, we stimulate economic development, societal impact, and improved life and health in Arizona and beyond.
