We provide the support to transform discovery into meaningful change.
As GW’s research capabilities and activities continue to grow, we’re keeping up by building innovative new spaces and reinforcing our support offices.
Research at GW does not stop when our scientists and students leave the labs. Instead, their work and knowledge is shared beyond campus and the city. Researchers report their findings to Congress and industry to inform changes to national and international policy. People from around the world recognize GW research when it provides new treatments for their diseases, makes their drinking water cleaner, or their hearts beat stronger and when it collectively changes our lives.
When you’re examining matter at a billionth of a meter, contaminants like dust, hair and dead skin are not welcome partners. In our Class 100 Nanofabrication Clean Room, our researchers don’t have to worry about these risks, instead focusing on discovery at the smallest levels of the world. In the cleanest parts of the room, each cubic foot of air has no more than 100 particles larger than 0.5 microns — roughly one-tenth the width of a red blood cell.
Research without Boundaries: Virginia Science & Technology Campus
CA88ca88While our partnerships and proximity in D.C. are a key part of our identity, innovation also happens outside of the city on our . Our researchers there influence many areas, including biological and health sciences, safety engineering, big data and data analytics and high-performance computing.
