Like the university itself, research at UC Riverside, is on the rise. Funding for our path-breaking research initiatives is up more than 39 percent over the past 5 years.

Here you’ll find world-class genetics experts who are leading the global fight against mosquito-borne illness, saving millions of lives. Our campus also boasts the nation’s largest indoor atmospheric test chamber, rendering us a leader in air pollution and alternative fuels research. And as California’s top resource for citrus research, UC Riverside partners with growers to protect California’s $7 billion+ citrus industry.

As a catalyst for economic growth and technological innovation, the campus contributes $2.7 billion to the United States economy. We proudly partner with local, national, and global entrepreneurs, corporate leaders, and fellow research enterprises to take our expertise and visionary solutions from the lab to the marketplace.
