Centers and Institutes at IUPUI
The innovative thinking by our IUPUI researchers has lead to the creation of many system-wide, campus-wide, and school/departmental centers and institutes.
Under Research Centers, we have also included links to many cores, labs and other resources faculty need to be successful in their research endeavors.
Multi-school centers that are applying for external funding are encouraged to review this Sustainability of Research Centers guide for indirect cost recovery.
