Research

The University of Memphis was awarded $152.4 million in external research support from 2011-2013. This was fueled by strong multidisciplinary research programs in bioscience, hazards, learning technologies, transportation, K-12 education and public health, as well as niche specialties in sensor technology, economic research and student development in STEM. Combined, these areas accounted for $112 million, or 74 percent, of the University’s total externally supported research.
