Welcome to the UH Research Web site.

If you’re a visitor, information about our research endeavors, experts and partnerships and recent news and announcements are now at your fingertips. If you’re a members of the UH community, you’ll find plenty of tools, too. You can identify funding sources, get details about funding regulations, submit proposals, post public descriptions of your projects, and read about programs, news and much more.

Research is one of the critical components in becoming a nationally competitive university. To build on the University of Houston’s strengths and move toward that goal, we are utilizing a research cluster framework – harnessing UH’s 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.

To get in touch with UH Research, we invite you to contact us at We welcome your comments and value your opinion.
