The Research & Innovation Office (RiO) expedites our Faculty's research growth by assisting researchers in every stage of their careers.   

For the individual investigator, RiO’s services mean more time to devote to research. Investigators can rely on research account support officers to manage research accounts and expenses, and more. RiO also helps FEAS' researchers build connections with industry and granting agencies in each of the Faculty’s strategic research areas.
