At URI, we support ideas that transform the way we understand the world.

Our researchers are helping scientists understand the volume of sea ice production and improve climate models of deep ocean currents. Visionary creative thinkers are imagining new ways of experiencing music and the visual arts that encourage inclusion and diversity. Innovators are isolating new molecules from blooms of cyanobacteria for potential use as therapeutics against a wide range of diseases.

Breakthrough research is what we do.
