We have coffee brewing for anyone who wants to collaborate along the lines of research and innovation.

Prof. Dr. Richel Lamadrid, Director of UnRIC


The University Research and Innovation Center (UnRIC) is in charge of monitoring and implementing research and innovation at Saint Louis University. The office is tasked with creating a vibrant Research Culture and protecting the intellectual property that emanates from such research.

UNRIC was formerly known as the Research & Development Office. In November 2019, it was renamed to amplify its newly defined purpose of building a university-wide entrepreneurial ecosystem. It has absorbed the existing positions from the Research & Development Office, such as the Institutional Studies and Statistical Services Officer and the Research Services Officer. A new position – the Innovation and Technology Transfer Officer – was added in 2020 to reflect the expanded scope of UnRIC and to include a perspective on the social and economic value of all kinds of intellectual outputs.


We envision the UnRIC to be an enabling research and innovation center, guided by the Christian spirit that will create, integrate and disseminate new knowledge through relevant and innovative research to ultimately provide scientific, economic, and socio-cultural benefits to the community.


UnRIC’s Mission is to actively support SLU’s current 5-year strategic development plan, with a special focus on further embedding and enhancing the Research Culture at an institutional level.

What is the Research Culture at SLU?
