Centers and Institutes
We provide support and oversight for a number of multidisciplinary research centers and institutes across the university.
Academic centers are supported primarily by the Office of Research or jointly in collaboration with participating colleges.
The Institute for Materials Research (IMR) is the gateway to Ohio State’s materials-allied research enterprise. Signature research areas include photovoltaics, magnetoelectronics, biomaterials and biosensors, computation materials and polymers.
To bring together Ohio State’s cyber strengths across a number of fields and disciplines, the Office of Research is launching the Institute for Cybersecurity and Digital Trust. The multi-disciplinary institute will build upon the world-class research efforts already being conducted at Ohio State and will provide the research, academic and operational foundation to address cybersecurity and digital trust issues and their impacts on society.
