Research

Every day at MSU, dedicated scientists, scholars, and students create and apply knowledge as they work to provide sustainable solutions to the world’s most pressing problems. In the process, they innovate, inspire, and empower—changing lives from East Lansing to East Africa.

Among the world’s top research universities, MSU began as a bold experiment that democratized higher education and used science and innovation to improve everyday life. Today, MSU research helps drive economic recovery in Michigan and create sustainable prosperity around the world.

Working side by side on campus and in communities around the world, we’re helping ensure safe food and water supplies, developing lifesaving vaccines, improving math and science education for students nationwide, and advancing alternative energy technologies.

Committed to providing opportunities for undergraduate research and creative activities, MSU also is home to top-ranked graduate programs and world-leading research centers that attract an international community of scientists and graduate students.

Together, we’re building on our legacy of empowerment and making the world a better, safer, more hopeful place.
