'A Research Heavyweight'

UC has been called a "research heavyweight" and "one of America's top public research universities." In fact, the university has nearly 200 years of history as a research pioneer. UC scientists invented the world's first electronic organ, antihistamine, heart-lung machine and oral polio vaccine.

Today, UC researchers continue to blaze new trails in science, medicine, business, education, engineering and the arts — literally transforming the way we live, work and learn. And the world is paying attention. UC is awarded hundreds of millions of dollars annually for its research efforts from governmental, industrial and nonprofit sources. Visionary ideas born from the bright minds at UC generate dozens of patent applications every year.
