Centers and Labs

In dozens of research centers and labs across Pace University, faculty and students are pushing boundaries in their fields. Some students are even co-authoring papers for publication in peer-reviewed journals—a valuable addition to a resume or grad school application.

There is an acute shortage of information assurance professionals in an industry challenged with an evolving threat to digital security. Through education and research, we're committed to addressing that shortage and building a strong workforce in a field that is crucial to keeping cyberspace secure.

Using large datasets and other tools, lab members—including students at every level—are examining how people cope with and adapt to significant life stressors, from break-ups to catastrophes.

The Haskins Laboratories produce groundbreaking research into parasitic disease and reveals new ways to improve human health globally. Students conduct mentored research and present their work at national and international conferences.

How can we eliminate health disparities? That's just one issue the center’s research faculty and students investigate. Research focus areas are gerontology, health promotion, health systems and services, and global health.

The Office of Research

The Office of Research provides support, resources, and assistance for research-related activities at Pace University. We help faculty, staff, and students seeking grants/external funding for their research, scholarship, and creative activities. Our office also houses the Institutional Review Board and IACUC committees, and administers research compliance and integrity programs for funded projects as well as the university community. We have an active workshop and lecture series to disseminate information about funding opportunities, foster interdisciplinary collaboration, and learn about the cutting-edge research being conducted at Pace.
