A message from Dr. Jeanne Hossenlopp, vice president of research and innovation

Dear colleagues and friends, 

In my last message, I shared what an exciting time this is for research and scholarship at Marquette University. Here I share a few more examples of the faculty expertise, ingenuity and collaboration that drive this research and scholarship to new heights of excellence in a full range of disciplines. These examples of the breadth of accomplishment of our campus community of scholars include an NEH-supported research volume on the lasting cultural meaning of art created during the Spanish Civil War; an NIH R01-funded project that improves mobility in people with multiple sclerosis through novel high-intensity training that challenges their sense of balance; and new research on the promise and risks that generative AI models bring to efforts to crowdfund for medical emergencies. Bonus links provide even more examples of research excellence at Marquette.

A measure of our growing research activity is seen in Marquette’s reported research expenditures. We reported research and development expenditures for fiscal year 2023 that reached a new university record, $47.8 million. Marquette has now seen year-to-year increases in 10 of the last 13 years (including a nearly 18% rise in FY23) and has more than doubled its R&D expenditures over the last 10 years. I hope you appreciate these articles, and I look forward to sharing my last message of this year with more research advances from Marquette later this spring.
