Research Partners

Research and scholarship are central to our College's mission and play vital roles in the life of the College as a whole. External research funding, the great majority of it coming from federal agencies such as the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, underwrites major programs of research by our faculty and students. Science faculty members throughout the college have developed state-of-the-art research programs in diverse disciplines and important new interdisciplinary areas. Our faculty members have active collaborations that extend not only across FAU's colleges and campuses but also with local research institutions such as Scripps Florida , the Torrey Pines Institute for Molecular Studies , and the Max Planck Florida Institute ; as well as affiliations with National Laboratories such as those at Los Alamos and Oak Ridge and international collaborations that span the globe.
