Research – Translational and Transformative

We are making strides in cancer, nanotechnology, global development, turbomachinery, and poverty, just to name a few areas of focus.

Innovative research is supported by more than twenty core facilities and interdisciplinary Strategic Research Initiatives, with research faculty finding their homes in one of Notre Dame’s seven colleges or schools.

Research funding at Notre Dame exceeded $138 million in FY2017, with 58% federal funding, 27% foundation funding and 15% corporate funding.  Funding awards have nearly doubled in the last 10 years. Notre Dame Researchers submitted over 1,200 proposals.
