Center for Genome Research and Biocomputing: The CGRB facilitates genome-enabled and data-driven research in the life and environmental sciences at OSU and across the state. The Center offers leadership, training and services to faculty, staff and students through expert staff, core laboratories, computational facilities, seminars and technology workshops, and conferences. It also provides a focal point for researchers to establish contacts, initiate collaborations, and apply new technologies in their own laboratories.

Center for Sustainable Materials Chemistry: The CSMC seeks to expand research and development and boost efforts to translate basic-level discoveries into the commercialization of new technologies. Its research focus includes the synthesis and study of solution-based film precursors and films, and their application in the fabrication of high-performance electronic devices.

Collaborative Robotics and Intelligence (CoRIS) Institute: The CoRIS Institute, consisting of 25 interdisciplinary faculty researchers, seeks to advance the theory, design, development, and deployment of robots and intelligence systems while exploring related public policy and ethical questions.

Cyber Resilient Energy Delivery Consortium: By involving industry early and often – from helping us to identify critical sector needs to performing pilot deployment and technology adoption – CREDC will develop projects that have significant and measurable sector impact. Our approach involves creating a pipeline through which foundational research will lead to applied research and development. This results in technology that is effective and affordable and can be implemented quickly in the field.

Eco-Informatics Summer Institute: The EISI brings together interdisciplinary groups of students from many universities to work with faculty mentors on research projects that advance knowledge and understanding of old-growth forests, streams, and other native and managed ecosystems at the HJ Andrews Experimental Forest.

Materials Synthesis and Characterization Facility: MASC is a comprehensive resource that serves as both an open user facility and an innovation center. MASC faculty and staff provide deep experience in thin-film deposition, device fabrication, and materials analysis, serving as a hub for materials and device development on the Oregon State University campus.

Northwest Alliance for Computational Science and Engineering: The NACSE develops interactive, web-based tools to make large biological, environmental, and climate databases more useful to practicing scientists and engineers.

Oregon Nanoscience and Microtechnologies Institute: ONAMI is Oregon’s first Signature Research Center. A deep collaboration among Oregon universities, Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, industry, and the investment community, ONAMI accelerates research and commercialization of materials science and related device and system technologies in Oregon.

Oregon Research and Teaching Security Operations Center: Working to build a world-class Security Operations Center to train the next generation of cybersecurity professionals while providing cybersecurity services to OSU and other institutions within the region.

Northwest Nanotechnology Infrastructure: The Northwest Nanotechnology Infrastructure site is a collaboration between the University of Washington and Oregon State University and is part of the National Science Foundation – National Nanotechnology Coordinated infrastructure. The NNI site specializes in world class nanotechnology infrastructure paired with technical and educational leadership in integrated photonics, advanced energy materials and devices, and bio-nano interfaces and systems; for a broad and diverse user base, its facilities act as a center for innovation for making, measuring, modeling, and mentoring to advance the use of nanotechnology in science and society.

Pacific Marine Energy Center: PMEC is a consortium of universities focused on the responsible advancement of marine energy, including wave, tidal, riverine, and offshore wind resources. Researchers from the Oregon State University, University of Washington, and University of Alaska Fairbanks work closely with marine energy technology developers, academic and National Laboratory researchers, coastal community members, ocean users, federal and state regulators, and other government officials to address key challenges in the sector and accelerate its emergence.

Pervasive Personalized Intelligence Center: The PPI Center is a multi-university partnership between the University of Colorado Boulder and Oregon State University. The industry-focused research center operates under the supervision of the National Science Foundation using the Industry-University Cooperative Research Centers model. It supports the next big growth in Internet of Things systems that pushes PPI to the edge of the network, where latency is critical, and mobility, privacy, and context awareness are essential qualities to enable an entirely new class of applications with intelligence that is predictive instead of reactive.
