Welcome to CALS Research

There are four priority areas of research in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences — Land-Grant Mission, Applied Social Sciences, Environmental Sciences, and New Life Sciences — all of which correspond to the College's Academic Priorities. Please use the search box to the right or browse with these links to explore information about research in specific academic priority areas.
Research in CALS is administered through the Office of the Senior Associate Deans. This office reviews, identifies, implements, facilitates, and communicates the College's research priorities. This Research Portal is an example of a comprehensive project which brings together and disseminates information about research activities throughout the College.
As the land grant university for New York State, Cornell University discharges its responsibility for research in the agricultural and related sciences through the Cornell University Agricultural Experiment Station (CUAES) in Ithaca and the New York State Agricultural Experiment Station (NYSAES) in Geneva. It is the mission of the experiment stations to provide the fundamental knowledge and the research base for sustaining our agriculture and food systems, protecting our environment and natural resources, and improving our communities throughout New York State as well as contributing the New York State share to the national agricultural research program.
