A Message from the Vice-President (Research)


The Office of the Vice-President (Research) – and, by extension, Western Research – exists to support and accelerate Western’s research, scholarship, creative activity, and innovation in every faculty at Western University. Whether we are helping facilitate the funding cycle, ensuring the highest level of ethical research, or helping promote research worldwide, we seek to foster an inclusive community and collaboration among our researchers. Our units and staff are dedicated to supporting Western’s roles in our community and around in the global, helping to effect economic, social, health and cultural change in our society. 

And whenever possible, we want to celebrate our researchers’ successes at home and abroad.

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out. Email me at vpr@uwo.ca.
