This has been perhaps the most extraordinary 18 months in the history of our university. Dealing with the ongoing coronavirus pandemic has demanded exceptional flexibility, patience, and endurance. Our faculty, staff, and student researchers have excelled at that challenge and, thanks to their efforts, research has continued strong at IU.
This report highlights only a sample of the achievements of the last academic year attained by IU researchers, the people who support them, and our many community, state, and international partners. You’ll find highlights of research and creative activities that are improving the lives of Hoosiers and many others, expanding the educational experience of IU students, and pushing the boundaries of discovery and innovation in areas from artificial intelligence and addiction to visual arts and world languages.
