Research is one of the critical
components in becoming a nationally competitive
university. To build on the University of Houstons
strengths and move toward that goal, we are
utilizing a research cluster framework
harnessing UHs research potential in six
areas of strategic strength. Through this exercise,
we have identified the interrelationships of
research areas in order to begin to capitalize
on them. UH is located in the global energy
capital and near the largest medical center
in the world, and, so, energy and biomedical
research are naturally two of our greatest strengths.
You can find out more about projects in those
areas, and ones in our four other clusters,
on our Researchers and News pages.
