To highlight the scope of world-class research being carried out by Temple faculty and students, the Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies has produced a 24-page publication titled Focus on Research.

“Research continues to be one of the top priorities of Temple University,” wrote Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies Kenneth Soprano in the publication’s introduction.

“This past year we’ve continued to make progress in solidifying and expanding our reputation as a top-tier research university.

“At an institution as academically diverse as Temple, state-of-the-art research is performed in a variety of different settings, including many of the academic departments that constitute our 17 schools and colleges, a number of specialized research centers and institutes and, most recently, in several newly developed interdisciplinary research centers,” Soprano added.

“It is by supporting the research activity at such a wide variety of venues that the university strives to bring together its stellar faculty’s experience and expertise to address contemporary issues in science and society.”

Focus on Research, which showcases research projects being carried by 17 faculty members, undergraduate students, research centers and institutes, can be viewed online at www.research.temple.edu/ovpr/docs/061-0506_ResearchReport6.pdf.

This is the second annual Focus on Research. The Office of the Vice President for Research and Graduate Studies produced the first edition in 2004, when Temple researchers were profiled as part of Temple’s alumni magazine, Temple Review.

A quarterly electronic newsletter, Research@Temple, is also under development. Write to research@temple.edu to subscribe.
