Research Centers & Institutes

A world-class research institution, the University of Missouri houses facilities that foster discovery and interdisciplinary collaboration in all academic fields.

Interdisciplinary research is MU’s hallmark. Examples of first-rate collaborative environments include the Center for Studies in Oral Tradition, the Christopher S. Bond Life Sciences Center, the Dalton Cardiovascular Research Center, the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute and the Health Activity Center.

MU has the nation’s most powerful university research reactor and is the largest U.S. producer of radioisotopes for diagnosing and treating cancer. The university has 17 research farms, research centers and forests, covering more than 14,500 acres, and operates one of five U.S. centers funded by the National Institutes of Health to lead interdisciplinary research on botanicals, part of a $25 billion dietary supplement industry.
