About FLORIDA STATE UNIVERSITY
Office of the Vice President for Research
On any given day at Florida State University, you will find faculty members and their students in the lab or in their studio working on the problems that face our world.
That could mean finding a cure for the Zika virus or studying how changes in the carbon cycle affect our climate. It could mean developing next-generation solar cells or exploring how the rise of autonomous vehicles will affect our laws and urban infrastructure.
Or on a more creative side, it could mean using art to tell the history of ancient Italy or developing original choreography to explain the hardships of war through dance.
The Florida State University Office of Research is the administrative arm that supports these researchers in their scientific and creative endeavors. Managing on average more than $200 million in research awards from state, federal and private sources, the Office of Research staff focuses its efforts on helping faculty move their work forward at every stage of the research process from identifying potential funding opportunities to protecting intellectual property to identifying potential industry partners.
More than ...115 staffers comprise the staff of the Office of Research, including professionals in proposal development, communications, technology transfer, sponsored research administration and more.
