Research Connection

From the Vice Provost for Research

The tangible benefits of a university’s research are extraordinary. When Cornell faculty teach and perform services for the community within their domain of expertise, we immediately understand these benefits.

But when Cornell faculty conduct research and that research materializes into a cure for a disease, a better medical procedure, a new green product, or a faster and more compact computer, we connect with the extraordinary potential of academic research.
