From foundations and local government to businesses and federal funds, the University of Iowa continues to acquire funding for research across the disciplines.
We believe in the intersectionality of research. That our discoveries can break ground across disciplines. That our state-of-the-art facilities give our students and faculty the cutting-edge technology needed for groundbreaking discoveries.

Groundbreaking and Interdisciplinary Research
Our medical researchers have access to the UI Hospitals and Clinics, one of the best hospitals in the country. Their research ranges from audiological technology to advances in biomedical engineering, all in pursuit of a healthier tomorrow.
From one-in-a-million discoveries to understanding the neuroanatomy of play, scientific researchers at Iowa have the resources to explore their theories and passions in state-of-the-art facilities.
We've maintained a long legacy of space exploration, beginning with James Van Allen and his discovery of the Van Allen Radiation Belt. This legacy continues with NASA-funded research in our state-of-the-art facilities.
Performing Arts Research
How can dance be used as an act of protest? A way to translate scientific concepts? Where do dance and engineering intersect? At Iowa, we encourage research that crosses disciplines to find innovative answers.
