Established in 2014 to support the University of South Florida (USF) as we continue our journey to become one of the top research and innovation universities in the United States, the Institute for Advanced Discovery & Innovation (IADI) brings together internationally recognized senior leaders—academics, industry heads, and innovators from diverse fields—to advise the administrative leadership of the university, share insights with USF's high-achieving faculty, mentor the university's most promising students, and make lasting contributions to both the Tampa Bay Area and the state of Florida.
