Propel Our Pioneering Research

Temple’s rise to the R1 category (“highest research activity”) in the most recent Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education places us in the top four percent in research productivity nationwide. Your gift will enable Temple to sustain this level of inquiry and launch new initiatives addressing society’s most pressing challenges.

Fueled by dynamic research focused on transforming lives, Temple’s efforts have led to game-changing breakthroughs, like the elimination of HIV from human immune cells, a reversal of heart failure in mice, and a possible way of inhibiting influenza. We collaborate to engineer textiles with novel applications, understand and protect against athlete concussion, and study the effects of tobacco smoke and opiates on HIV patients. From biomedicine at the Lewis Katz School of Medicine and Fox Chase Cancer Center, to studies of texting and learning at the College of Education, pioneering research is conducted at Temple University every day.
