Explore Research

Research is the lifeblood of modern universities and a defining element of an institution’s character. New and exciting research opportunities occur across campus everyday. TU’s research environment is one of our university’s most distinctive advantages. As a mid-size university (about 4,500 students total, including 1,100 graduate and law students), TU is large enough to support a vigorous research program yet small enough that our scholars remain visible members of a community.

In a lot of bigger schools the professors and advisors can get wrapped up in the status of their research and lose sight of the goal of producing students who are ready to make an impact on society. TU professors care about your success.

In the second semester of my master studies, I took bioinformatics with Dr. Brett McKinney where I learned about developing computational tools to understand biological data.
