Exploring and Engaging Tufts' Research and Scholarship Priorities

Please bring your ideas for Tufts’ future to “A Brighter World Through Research and Scholarship,” a University-wide conference being held on Monday, October 29, 2018 in Boston. The program will include: 1) priority area discussions and participation, 2) small group workshops, and 3) a networking reception.


After months of extensive data gathering, Tufts University has identified five priority research areas that the University is uniquely qualified to address over the next five to ten years: Climate, Food, Water & Energy; Comparative Global Humanities; Equitable Society; Living Technology; and One Health. Working groups for each of the five thematic priority areas were formed and twelve research proposals were developed.

After careful review, the Research and Scholarship (RSSP) Steering Committee selected eight of the most actionable proposals for funding over the next three years. The Executive Committee approved the funding for these proposals in two phases.  

Phase I Funded Proposals

  • Center for Integrated Management of Antimicrobial Resistance (CIMAR)
  • Culture, History, and Translation
  • Healthy Aging
  • Laboratory for Living Devices (LLD)

Phase II Funded Proposals

  • Climate and Energy
  • Equity in Health, Wealth, and Civic Engagement
  • Food and Water Nexus
  • Global Obesity Collaborative
