women in research + scholarship


This year we celebrate International Women's Day by featuring just a few of the many extraordinary women scholars and researchers at the University of Miami.

The researchers below all hold research leadership positions at the University, either within their respective departments or as leaders in the University's Laboratory for Integrative Knowledge, U-LINK. We also feature women-led projects supported by the Office of the Vice Provost for Research + Scholarship's Research Development and Evaluation team, which manages many internal funding mechanisms including the Provost's Research Awards, Arts & Humanities Fellowships, and U-LINK.
