Hi there! It's great to see you so invested in building the perfect college list. Duke University is definitely well-regarded as a research institution. In fact, they have a strong commitment to research, with multiple well-established research centers and institutes on campus.

My own child has attended Duke, and they've had amazing opportunities to collaborate with accomplished faculty on cutting-edge research projects. If research is a driving factor for you, you'll be well-supported at Duke! Since they are a member of the prestigious Research Triangle (which also includes the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and North Carolina State University), they have access to a wealth of resources and connections.

Of course, each university has its specifics in terms of research focus and strength, so I'd highly recommend looking up specific information related to your field of interest at Duke. Best of luck with your college search, and don't hesitate to ask if you have more questions!
