The Find a Researcher database contains listings of University of Utah faculty and graduate students who are research topic experts and potential research collaborators. You may search for people by entering names, research keywords, departments, international experience keywords and equipment. For a more complete view of international research and activities, you can use the university's Global U Inventory site.

We are currently in the process of transitioning to a new search engine. We apologize for any degraded search performance and result weighting that you may experience.

Many of the same features that you are able to use with a Google search will work with Find A Researcher! You can use these tools to find exactly what you're looking for.
