Northeastern pursues innovative, use-inspired research. Our multidisciplinary faculty-led teams are discovering effective solutions to societal problems, with a focus on global challenges in health, security, and sustainability.
External funding, especially from the federal government, is required for Northeastern to continue this aggressive and far-seeing research agenda. The University supports increased federal research funding from such agencies at the National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Energy, the Department of Defense, the National Endowment for the Humanities, and the Department of Homeland Security.
