About Research and Technology Transfer
The Office of Research and Technology Transfer (RTT), is a unit under the department of Translational Research and Economic Development. RTT is the overarching organization for the Office of Sponsored Programs, Office of Clinical Research, Office of Technology Transfer, and the Grant Writing Laboratory.
Basic, applied, clinical and commercial research are all essential fundamentals to enhance the student's education experience, attract highly qualified students, attract highly qualified faculty, grow the clinical practice and translate research for the good of the public. Our vision for research is:
- to optimize the value of research activities at NSU and leverage scholarly, basic, clinical and commercial research to enhance education, patient care, development, public service and NSU's image as a research university,
- to generate revenue for NSU through technology transfer to support education and research while preserving the academic mission and
- to foster economic development in the community.
