"Imagination is more important than knowledge."- Albert Einstein

Good teaching and leading edge research are cornerstones of the School of Science. With partners such as NASA, investigators in the Department of Atmospheric and Planetary Sciences launched the AIM (Aeronomy in the Mesosphere) weather satellite, the first mission in the nation to be fully controlled by a Historically Black College/University (HBCU). Advancements in medical technologies in the Center for Advanced Medical Instrumentation (CAMI) in the Physics Department spawned the Hampton University Proton Therapy Institute, the world's largest freestanding proton therapy cancer treatment facility, located in Hampton, Virginia. Scientists receive funding and research awards from the National Science Foundation (NSF); the National Institutes of Health (NIH); the Department of Defense (DOD); the Department of Energy (DOE); the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA); the Howard Hughes Medical Institute (HHMI); the Keck Foundation and other agencies. We welcome and invite you to explore and learn more in our innovative laboratories of discovery.
