Graduate Research

Work in state-of-the-art labs. Collaborate with industry leaders and esteemed academics. Conduct research that shapes real policies and helps real people.

At UM-Dearborn, graduate students lead and work with faculty in groundbreaking, socially-relevant research projects.

Through partnerships with local industry and government organizations, we’ve expanded our access to sophisticated data and resources and increased our potential to change lives, in southeast Michigan and across the world.

We’re investigating risk factors for diabetes and improving implantable medical devices. We assist Ford Motor Co. and General Motors Company in developing new automotive designs and better testing processes. We study local ecosystems and explore new applications for bioengineering in the food and pharmaceutical industries.

The Office of Research and Sponsored Programs connects students and faculty to federal, internal and private funding opportunities, including grants to cover research, travel and presentation costs. With their support, we can continue in our mission to strengthen businesses, communities and families near and far.
