December 20, 2018

According to a new report by the University of Minnesota's Office of the Vice President for Research, the external research portfolio grew by 6.5 percent YOY to $793 million. 

Overall, 51 percent of all fiscal 2018 research awards were to the Medical School or other health sciences, underscoring the University’s broad strength across many biomedical and health disciplines.

In a press release, Jakub Tolar, MD, PhD said the “Game-changing discoveries have been made at this University—we know how to do these things because we’ve done them before. The renewal of CTSI’s grant and our new partnership with Fairview are about harnessing the ability to advance medicine. We have an opportunity to build something here that makes Minnesotans proud and continues to fulfill the land-grant mission set forth by the University’s founders.”
