Research that Makes an Impact

Every day at the University of Arizona, scientists and researchers are working across a variety of disciplines to create change. Home to more than 70 world-class research centers, institutes, laboratories, networks and programs, our work towards a better world is widespread.

Natural and social science research by our own nationally and internationally renowned scientists and by those we support has honed public understanding of climate, climate change and climate adaptation, particularly in semi-arid regions such as Arizona. The work we do on campus and in the community has given policymakers and natural resource managers the information they need to make decisions that protect lives, health, economies and landscapes in the Sonoran Desert and beyond.

Environmental research

From local to international issues, natural sciences to social sciences, our research digs deeper to unearth solutions.
