ResearchRanging from laboratory collaborations in the life and health sciences to cutting-edge investigations in the mathematical sciences, 122 tenured track faculty lead active research initiatives.
For undergraduate students, research is an excellent way to build relationships with senior scientists and add depth to their university experience. At the School of Science at IUPUI, students are exposed to opportunities that no other school in the state of Indiana can offer. As early as freshman year, students in the School of Science can engage in research with faculty mentors in the school and across campus.
- Undergraduate researchers receive financial support, gain access to advanced lab equipment, and enjoy the opportunity to work one-on-one with renowned faculty.
- Many students present their research at national meetings, and their findings are occasionally published in scientific journals.
