Centers and Institutes

The Office of Research provides support and oversight for a number of multidisciplinary research centers. These centers fall into one of three categories: academic centers, supported primarily by the Office of Research or jointly in collaboration with participating colleges; core facilities; and centers funded directly by the Ohio Board of Regents that serve all University System of Ohio institutions but are housed at Ohio State.
