Research at UofL
Research creates the knowledge and innovations that generate wealth and improve lives. At the University of Louisville, we are driven to perform research at the very highest levels and to seek discoveries that become the growth platforms of tomorrow.
As Kentucky’s premier metropolitan research institution, UofL is key to the state’s advancement. Whether directing Kentucky’s renewable energy research agenda, leading the world’s transplantation efforts, using novel nanoscale devices to improve the nation’s security, or creating new compounds to improve world health, UofL researchers contribute in significant ways. Every UofL initiative, no matter the subject, has one common goal: it is designed to make lives safer, healthier, and more culturally vibrant and to move Kentucky into a competitive position in the nation and world.
