Research Overview


At DU, we empower students and faculty to solve the challenging problems of our time. Involvement in scholarly research gives our students the opportunity to gain valuable experience and make new discoveries in our labs and communities. That’s why we’re among the latest to be recognized as a Very High Research University (or “R1”) by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education, 这一荣誉意味着你有更多的机会, greater impacts for the communities we serve and more of the same great research for us.  

Our relationships and resources allow us to provide our student and faculty researchers with access to funding and laboratories that make innovation possible. Combining those relationships and resources with our campus-wide dedication to discovery promotes innovative research that goes beyond traditional boundaries.
