A research center (also known as research group) is a facility or building dedicated to research, commonly with the focus on a specific area. There are over 14,000 research centers in the United States. Centers apply varied disciplines including basic research and applied research in addition to non traditional techniques. However, a research center should not be confused with a research institute. Many universities have established research centers to focus on a particular area of research. Numerous research centers can be established in a single university.
