Interdisciplinary Resources

Tools, templates, policies, and other resources for interdisciplinary collaboration.

Research Centers and Institutes

The University of Washington is known for its strategic, multidisciplinary research. Within our extensive network of Centers and Institutes, UW researchers, staff, and students work across disciplines to extend the boundaries of knowledge.

eScience Institute

All across our campus, the process of discovery increasingly relies on researchers' ability to extract knowledge from vast amounts of data. In order to remain at the forefront, UW must be a leader in advancing these techniques and technologies, and in making them accessible to researchers in the broadest imaginable range of fields. This is the mission of the eScience Institute.

Collaborative Activity Maps

Measures of activity including data on joint/adjunct faculty appointments, joint courses offered, and types of multiple majors. Collaborative activity will be increasingly important, particularly given its heightened emphasis in teaching and the acquisition of new grants.

Institution of Translational Health Sciences

ITHS' goal is to improve the health for people in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana and Idaho. ITHS provides opportunities for partnerships between scientists, clinicians and communities needed to tackle complex health issues.

Limited Submissions

Many federal agencies and foundations offer grants, awards and fellowships that limit the number of applications that can come from one institution. In order to increase the chances of the UW succeeding in such 'limited submission opportunity' applications, the Office of Research has established a procedure to review pre-proposals in a timely fashion.

Libraries Research Commons

Through a partnership with the Graduate School, workshops on citation management, co-authoring, academic publishing, writing and literature review searching are provided on an ongoing basis that foster interdisciplinary activities.

Translational Technologies and Resources Core

TTRC focuses on increased access and utilization of existing facilities while developing new technologies for translational researchers.
