Innovation U.

Abstract:

Tachung C. Yih, Ph.D., vice provost for Research at Oakland University, agrees that the opportunity to work in a supportive research environment - one that compensates generously - is how research will grow in the region. Dr. Yih relocated to Oakland last summer from the University of Texas in San Antonio, despite the prevailing belief that the best and brightest are leaving Michigan. It's all about "the challenge," he says.

An established researcher in nanomedicine, Dr. Yih joined Oakland to help elevate its research program to the level of the other major universities in Michigan. In his opinion, the critical component to attracting research talent is financial investment. "If you pay well, people will come," Dr. Yih states plainly.
