Boehlert, smiling.OSU centers and institutes are crucial in bringing investigators together for innovative interdisciplinary collaboration,  expanding both the discovery and the application of knowledge.  I salute all our faculty and staff involved in the centers, and especially appreciate the leadership of those who serve as directors.


The Vice President for Research and the Research Office provide direct administrative leadership and support for the following Centers and Institutes. Of course,  even more research units, some within colleges, are integral to the OSU enterprise,  and OSU has a significant leadership presence in key national programs.Lisa Gaines, smiling.
