Welcome to the Division of University Research at Rowan University!

We are responsible for promoting, supporting and administering the research, scholarly and creative activity of all the faculty, staff and students at Rowan University. We are here to support you in:
  • Identifying opportunities for sponsored research;
  • Advocating for our faculty with external research sponsors and collaborators;
  • Administering all aspects of the sponsored research process including ensuring compliance with applicable Federal, State and University rules and laws;
  • Fostering the creation, management and technology transfer of intellectual property;
  • Reporting research performance metrics to stakeholders, both internally and externally.

Research at Rowan University occurs in a collaborative, learning-centered environment. Highly qualified and diverse teams of faculty, staff, and students integrate teaching, research, scholarship, creative activity, and community service. Our collaborations with other institutions extend across the State of New Jersey, the country and even internationally. Our faculty are becoming renowned for their research expertise, as demonstrated by the increasing number of competitive grant awards and publications in prestigious peer-reviewed journals.

This is a time of unprecedented growth and change at Rowan. With the recent opening of the South Jersey Technology Park and the establishment of the Cooper Medical School, the opportunities for research and collaboration have expanded significantly.

Whether you are a member of the Rowan faculty, a potential collaborator or a research sponsor, we thank you for visiting our webpage. I hope that you can find the information you are looking for, and if I can help, please do not hesitate to contact me.

With best wishes,


Shreekanth Mandayam,
