Every day University of Florida researchers create new technologies, discover industry breakthroughs, spawn new economic opportunities and pave the way for the next generation of leaders.

From developing an electronic bomb fuse that proved to be vital during World War II to inventing the most popular sports drink in the world, Gatorade, UF researchers continue to uncover ideas that change the world.

Last year alone, UF researchers received a record of $724 million in research awards.

That’s where we come in.

The University of Florida Office of Research provides programs and services to support UF faculty and staff in their research efforts.

We identify grant opportunities, manage proposals and awards, protect intellectual property, work with potential industry partners, highlight research achievements and more.
