IU research

Indiana University has been one of the nation’s premier research universities for 200 years, and we mark our bicentennial with a foundation of broad and deep research achievements. During those centures, IU's world-class researchers have driven innovation and creative initiatives that matter. From curing testicular cancer to collaborating with NASA to search for life on Mars, IU has earned its reputation as a world-class research institution. Supported by $680 million last year from our partners, IU researchers are building collaborations and uncovering new solutions that improve lives in Indiana and around the globe.

IU researchers are making discoveries every day.
