Office of Research Restructured

The Idaho State University Office of Research has been restructured to better accommodate and support researchers and to promote the economic benefit of that research.

"We have restructured the ISU Office of Research to increase innovation and research activities at Idaho State University," said Howard Grimes, ISU vice president for research and economic development. "We recognized we needed greater clarity in our operating model to better serve research faculty."

The ISU Office of Research now has three major focuses and departments: Research Development, Research Integrity and Research Innovation.

"The new structure has been put in place to facilitate the channels of information for the Office of Research and the faculty it serves," Grimes said. "We'll see a lot of improvement in research development, allowing faculty to work faster and more easily with the Office of Research. We'll get them better information and it will improve research opportunities."

The Vice President for Research Office is located in the ISU Administration Building, 921 S. Eighth Ave., in Pocatello. The Research Development, Research Integrity and Research Innovation offices are located at the ISU Research and Innovation in Science and Engineering Complex, 1999 Alvin Ricken Drive, Pocatello.
