Dr. Radenka Maric, newly appointed Vice President for Research at UConn and UConn Health, intends to grow the university’s research enterprise by increasing strategic connections within and beyond the university’s walls.

“Collaboration is going to become the model of the future for scientists,” Maric explains. “I want to bring more faculty, companies, and foundations together on collaborative projects to grow UConn’s capabilities and increase our chances of receiving substantial funding for cutting-edge research. We cannot do that alone.”
