UC's Research & Innovation Week kicked off a Bicentennial celebration showcasing the impactful, imaginative, and innovative work researchers at UC are accomplishing.

The week included many events that engaged both the campus and larger community. As part of the ongoing opioid crisis affecting communities and families across the country, UC's Office of Research hosted a panel discussion, which included local dignitaries and New York Times bestseller J.D. Vance at the 1819 Innovation Hub titled “Resolving to Save Lives: Partnerships for the Goal of Ending the Opioid Epidemic.”

On the other side of campus in UC's Nippert Stadium, Jiaqi Ma, an assistant professor of civil engineering in UC's College of Engineering and Applied Science, demonstrated an autonomous vehicle. To a crowd of spectators and local elementary students, Ma described ways to implement both driverless cars and a smart road system that allows cars to communicate with traffic lights and other vehicles.

The week of events — including a Louder Than a Bomb poetry slam contest — highlighted UC's inclusivity, innovation and the impact UC's research has on Cincinnati, the region and beyond — all of which are important elements of the university's Next Lives Here strategic direction.
