Research Funding Climbs to Historic Levels
Total research funding to the University jumped by 18 percent in 2010 to $415 million—an increase of more than $64 million over the previous year and an amount that is double what the University received 11 years ago. “This growth in research funding is extraordinary, particularly given the economic climate in which it occurred,” President Seligman said. “It is a testament to not only the talent of the University’s scientific community, but it also represents an affirmation of the strategic investments in research infrastructure made by this institution with public and private support.”
