Discovery at Ohio State
Accelerating Discovery, Solving Complex Problems
Discovery at Ohio State is the way in which we connect diverse ideas and people across disciplines and communities. It's the way that our outstanding faculty, devoted university campuses, and engaged partners connect to form and scale teams that translate knowledge into solutions. It is a passion to ask questions yet to be asked and tackle problems yet to be solved.
The Discovery Themes Initiative embodies this attitude. Building on the full strength of Ohio State's teaching and research, with the support of the Office of Research, we are further expanding our capacity to address complex problems at a pace and scale few others can match.
