Research Activities

The faculty and students in the Department are engaged in various ongoing research programs. Below we describe these broad programs, the faculty and students involved, the individual research projects, and provide links to research centers.

It is important to emphasize that these research programs each have external grant support, and each involves VU undergraduate students as research assistants, especially in the summer months. You can learn more about the research work our students have done recently, both here at VU and at other research centers.
