The Applied Research Institute was created in 2011 to leverage the University’s human and capital assets to support applied research, education and training with a focus on homeland security, national intelligence and defense challenges.

The institute’s mission is to create research opportunities for faculty, staff and students; develop and provide education and training programs relevant to its partners; foster pan-University research initiatives; provide UVA students unique analytical, research, and development opportunities; and facilitate faculty/scientific exchanges with industry and government.

Faculty in UVA’s Engineering School, School of Medicine, and the College of Arts and Sciences are involved in research with the institute. Research partners to date include Northrop Grumman, SRC, TASC, Signature Science, and Battelle, among others, working on projects related to undersea power units, cyber security, custom integrated circuits, scientometric analysis of scientific literature, bioinformatics and infectious disease.

Ultimately the ARI strives to become a premier center that addresses today’s biggest challenges for national security and defense, and has the involvement of the entire University community.
