Here, Discovery is a Daily Occurrence.

The University of Nebraska has been a hub for groundbreaking research and innovative activity ever since we were founded to drive the growth of a state on the frontier of our nation.

Today, our frontiers are found in the advancements we make in agriculture and natural resources, transportation and highway safety, early childhood education, nanotechnology and alternative energy. We also tackle a wide range of public health issues. With research in cancer, diabetes, organ transplantation, aging, and

neurodegenerative diseases, we are improving the quality of life for people in Nebraska and around the world.

These endless interdisciplinary, inter-campus, and inter-institutional undertakings make it no surprise the University of Nebraska is among the top 30 U.S. public universities in research and development spending. Research funding has more than doubled since 2000, which has helped us build world-class facilities in Lincoln and at our Medical Center.
