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.

"I intend to ensure that our University meets its mission of advancing scholarship and pushing the boundaries of knowledge – that we further translate our advancements into the services, products, therapeutics, policies, arts and perspectives that will benefit the citizens of our state and broader communities."
Peter J. Snyder, Vice President, URI Division of Research and Economic Development
