New website will showcase Northwestern research

Ally Mutnick, Development and Recruitment Editor

Northwestern debuted a new project Wednesday that aggregates all its research news onto one website.

Titled “Discover” after one of the four pillars in NU’s strategic plan, the project will be curated by the Office for Research, along with faculty from NU’s different departments and schools. The website will be updated continually to reflect new discoveries in 10 different areas of NU research.

The site will focus on biomedical sciences; design; energy and sustainability; global health; international studies; markets, social structures and public policy; media; nanoscience; performing arts; and writing and oral expression.

“The discover pillar succinctly outlines 10 areas where Northwestern has a significant research impact,” said Jay Walsh, NU’s vice president for research, in a news release. “Research and innovation in these areas will address difficult problems, creating solutions that have the potential to improve lives.”
