Fall Research Guidance

Virginia Tech requires the proper use of masks by all individuals, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors in designated public areas. This mask requirement does not apply to private workplaces, which may include research laboratories.


Researchers are empowered to develop and explore new ideas through seed funding, prepare proposals for identified opportunities, and execute research in cutting-edge shared facilities -- all with support from research adminstration.

The Office of the Vice President for Research and Innovation enriches, supports, cultivates, and champions research, innovation, creative activities, and scholarship that seeks to make the world a better place.
