The College of Science and Mathematics has a strong basic science focus with a growing emphasis on applied research, averaging over $10 million annually in grants and contracts. We maintain close relations with area hospitals, Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, the Air Force Research Laboratory, and the Air Force Institute of Technology which provide many unique opportunities for research collaborations.
Undergraduates interested in research opportunities and off-campus internships should check out the Undergraduate Research & Experiential Learning Program
Areas of research loosely align with our four PhD programs:
- Biomedical Sciences "BMS"
- Environmental Sciences "ES"
- Human Factors and Industrial Organization Psychology "HFIO"
- Interdisciplinary Applied Science and Mathematics "IASM"
The college's eight departments provide the college with a unique blend of disciplines: from psychology to neuroscience or brain activity, chemistry to biochemistry, sensor development to sensory perception, and computational modeling of ecosystems to water percolation in soils.
The college has instituted a new hiring strategy to develop areas of strength across typical departmental borders. The current research clusters that the college is developing include:
- Cell Signaling
- Environmental Sciences - Science of Global Change
- Computational Science and Modeling
- Science Education
To find scholary articles, student projects and more from the colleges & schools use Wright State University's Campus Online Repository (CORE) Scholar.
Kara Geremia was recently profiled on OhioLINK's website for her extensive use of OhioLINK to support her graduate school reseach efforts. Kara recently completed her Chemistry Master's Thesis “Computational Estimation of the pKa’s of Purines and Related Compounds” under the guidance of Co-Advisor's, Dr. Eric Fossum and Dr. Paul Seybold.
Chemistry Graduate Students, Brady Hall and James Ohaeri, and Undergraduates Nick Yahna and James Herbort received certificates and monetary awards.
