About RDSI

The Office of Research Development and Strategic Initiatives (RDSI) supports research and innovation at the University of Louisville by helping faculty find and secure funding and work with industry partners to solve problems.

For researchers and faculty, RDSI works across UofL’s multitude of disciplines to identify relevant funding opportunities from federal, non-profit, private, state and other funding sources, then develop winning proposals.

RDSI also connects UofL with industry, creating partnerships that help both grow and innovate. These partnerships take many forms, ranging from sponsored research to on-campus co-location for startups and established companies.
