Research Connection

From the Vice Provost for Research

The tangible benefits of a research university are extraordinary. When Cornell faculty teach and perform services in the community within their domain of expertise, we immediately connect with the university’s rich values of education and engagement. When Cornell faculty conduct research and that research materializes into a cure for a disease, a new green product, a better medical tool, a great-tasting nutritious food product, or a faster and more compact mobile device, we connect with the remarkable impact of academic research.
