Research Programs

Research is a central element of Duquesne University’s educational programs, giving students direct experience in exciting research projects. Duquesne faculty pursue research interests in a wide range of contemporary fields, from the natural sciences to medical sciences, social sciences and the humanities.

Many faculty/scholars concentrate their fields of study on national priorities, including biotechnology, cyber security and international health. We provide the results of faculty research to society through scholarly publications, licenses, or technology transfer. The Office of Research supports principal investigators and handles the administrative aspects of research programs.
