For decades, GW has addressed national and global problems with research that makes a difference in the world. With additional funding, we will build upon our strengths while expanding our influence in the arts and humanities, sciences, engineering, medicine and public health.
As the world grows more interconnected and interdisciplinary, GW is building a research program that can quickly respond to changing priorities. Our researchers and faculty are taking the initiative by partnering across disciplines to tackle fundamental societal issues.
From Dr. Akos Vertes’ research efforts to thwart biochemical terror attacks to Dr. Sara Rosenbaum, who has literally written the book on the American health care system, GW researchers interact with the world’s top science and policy leaders at the forefront of discovery. Working relationships with federal agencies and connections to numerous multilateral organizations and corporate partners generate breakthroughs that have an impact on millions of lives.
Support for faculty and student researchers helps address today's global challenges and educates future generations as pioneers of innovation and inquiry.
Build Modern Research Facilities
With state-of-the-art laboratories and teaching facilities, the Science & Engineering Hall gives our world-class researchers the tools to solve global problems.
Expand Undergraduate Research
We'll increase the number of students involved in research and joint research hires with government agencies and private entities.
Promote Cross-Disciplinary Research
From the Global Women's Institute to the Computational Biology Institute, we are establishing additional interdisciplinary research initiatives that link diverse fields with important issues of public policy.
