WPI’s growing research enterprise focuses on discovering and developing solutions to problems that matter to people. We work across disciplines to educate students and give researchers opportunities to push boundaries. Researchers at WPI collaborate with academic, industry, government, and private partners to increase the impact of all we do, and we create pathways to develop a workforce that advances new ideas at every level.
WPI’s facilities support research that creates change. Whether it is the customized training and cutting-edge equipment of the Biomanufacturing Education and Training Center (BETC), PracticePoint’s spaces for health care research, development, and testing, or any of WPI’s other labs, our research transforms lives for the better.
“WPI researchers work in teams across disciplines and around the world to find practical, sustainable, and humane solutions to difficult problems."
-Bogdan Vernescu, Vice Provost for Research
The Office of the Vice Provost for Research supports the university’s research enterprise by enhancing the environment for exploration, encouraging the highest standards of quality, and fostering ethical conduct in research.
