Brief Guide to Research
From the Vice President for Research to Texas A&M University Researchers
Welcome to Research at Texas A&M University—a major public research institution. Texas A&M holds a triple designation as a landgrant, sea-grant and space-grant university. We have participated in more than 500 research projects in over 80 countries and lead the Southwest with annual research expenditures of more than $550 million. Texas A&M conducts research on every continent in the world and has formal research and exchange agreements with about 100 institutions in about 40 countries. Texas A&M has established strong research collaboration with the Chinese National Natural Science Foundation - and many leading Chinese Universities. We have hosted two very successful international China-U.S. Relations Conferences: the 2003 Conference: Past, Present, and Future, held at Texas A&M University and the 2005 Conference: Trade, Diplomacy, and Research,
held in Beijing, China. The 2007 China-U.S. Relations Conference will be held in Washington, D.C.
This Brief Guide to Research is a source of research services such as grant writing, available infrastructure, funding, sponsored project administration, compliance, student research opportunities, and select Texas A&M research policies and procedures. This booklet is by no means a complete list of research resources available at Texas A&M. We hope that you will use the research opportunities available at Texas A&M to create and maintain an exciting educational environment, as well as an opportunity to grow professionally.
