GW student in a research lab

From sustainable energy advances to medical invention, George Washington University is working to match the excitement of discovery and excellence of instruction with superior research. While blazing scientific and technological trails and mastering global challenges, these advances solidify the escalating value of a GW education and confirm the university’s identity as a world-class research institution. 

President Knapp has charged the vice president for research with developing new cross-disciplinary initiatives to identify and improve academic work that crosses the boundaries of traditional fields. Whether they are participating in groundbreaking research or learning with a professor who expands a frontier of knowledge, George Washington students can join numerous cross-disciplinary odysseys in pursuit of new solutions that will shape the future.
