Which universities do NASA and the CDC collaborate with? Here is a list of federal institutions and their collaborations with U.S. universities.

We often get inspired by looking at NASA and imagining what it would be like to spend time at their research stations. Similarly, biomedical graduates value the National Institutes of Health (NIH) or CDC, and electronics engineers aspire to work at NIST. These illustrious institutions frequently collaborate with universities on projects that recruit graduate students, including those from India. For example, the NIH works with Johns Hopkins University on cancer research and the University of California, San Francisco on genetic studies. NASA partners with MIT on space technology and Stanford University on aeronautics research. NSF collaborates with Harvard University on quantum computing and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign on supercomputing initiatives. The CDC engages with Emory University on infectious disease studies and the University of Washington on public health initiatives. USDA works with Iowa State University on agricultural innovations and Cornell University on food safety. DOE collaborates with the University of California, Berkeley on renewable energy and MIT on nuclear energy projects. EPA partners with the University of North Carolina on air quality research and Duke University on environmental policy. NIST engages with the University of Colorado Boulder on precision measurement and Carnegie Mellon University on cybersecurity. These collaborations drive advancements in health, technology, environment, and energy, significantly contributing to scientific and societal progress.
