Plants' Ability to Fight Climate Change is Weakening
New research indicating that plants' ability to absorb carbon dioxide may have stalled, suggesting that perhaps we shouldn't put all our climate mitigation hopes in too many plant-based strategies either, at least for the time being.Read the full story
Welcome to the Office of Research and Innovation
The Office of Research and Innovation supports MSU’s research and creative activity by administering research funding, ensuring research integrity for both faculty and students, providing grant support services, fostering collaboration, licensing university inventions, and overseeing regulatory compliance.
To support growth and accelerate the pace of discovery, Michigan State launched the Global Impact Initiative (GI2) in 2014 with the goal of recruiting 100 new faculty in some of the most exciting areas of research.
Our Research Development and Proposals Services team has developed a checklist tool to help new researchers walk through the steps of setting up their first research project.
A new resource developed by faculty is now available to aid in the design and preparation of federal training grant applications.
Henry Ford Health System and Michigan State University are partnering to make Michigan a national leader in providing access to exceptional health care for all residents, scientific discovery and education for providers, patients and families.
National and international faculty awards are an important component of institutional reputation, and are counted as AAU institutional indicators of excellence.
To support the academic community, the Office of Research and Innovation is thrilled to offer BioRender at the subsidized rate of $100 per year, providing faculty and students with an affordable solution to create stunning, publication-quality graphics that effectively convey complex scientific concepts.
FeaturedFrom the bench to the community: A community partnership approach to work on health disparities, Dr. Irving Vega
Irving E. Vega is a Red Cedar Distinguished Professor and Associate Professor in the Department of Translational Neuroscience in the College of Human Medicine at Michigan State University. His research focuses on the molecular and biochemical mechanisms that modulate the accumulation of pathological tau proteins in Alzheimer’s disease and related dementias. Dr. Vega is also working on health disparities and the influence of ethnoracial factors on blood biomarkers in Alzheimer’s disease.
