Transformative Opportunities 



Research at the University of Oregon

The impact of University of Oregon research and innovation is all around you.

Millions of American schoolchildren use educational materials developed here. Faculty are creating new ways to treat disease and prevent injury. The UO pioneered research on risk perception and psychic numbing. The first cloning of a vertebrate — the zebrafish — happened right here, dramatically increasing global understanding of genetic mutation. We study languages and cultures to learn from the past in order to create a more equitable future for all people. Sportswear has gotten a lot more inclusive for every type of body. And we’re just getting started. 

The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation provides the necessary scaffolding to catalyze and facilitate groundbreaking research, scholarship, and creative activity at the UO.
