New Research Web Site and Publication

Research at Penn

Penn, which ranks among America's top recipients of competitive research grants--with more than $500 million in external funding annually--has launched a new research web site and publication to share the knowledge generated by the 4,300 faculty researchers. The site and publication, both called Research at Penn, highlight the breadth of research activity across Penn's 12 schools.

The web site is accessible to all members of the Penn community and the general public. Its companion publication will be sent annually to some 10,000 friends of the University.

"For too long, people interested in learning about the latest advances in knowledge from Penn's laboratories, libraries and classrooms have had to scour numerous web sites to gather that information," said Provost Robert Barchi."Now, those interested in Penn's research contributions will be able to read about them in a single location."

Already comprising more than 400 research news stories, the Research at Penn web site is updated continuously with information gathered from across the University to chronicle advances in the areas of health, natural science, technology, society and business. A related e-mail newsletter, distributed as developments warrant, brings Penn's latest research findings directly to subscribers' in-boxes.
