FOCUS AREAS

In the research arena, collaborative proposals are becoming more common and many focus areas cross departmental and college lines. This means that research resources, equipment and facilities that cater to the different focus areas at USC may be located all across campus. This webpage is designed to enable faculty in these focus areas to easily identify research resources, equipment and facilities by focus area.
