Federal Support Key to Gains

During the previous fiscal year, scientists and scholars at the University of Missouri-Columbia generated high levels of research as well as instruction and public service funding support. Expenditures for sponsored research rose dramatically over FY 2004 totals, as did the sum of dollars awarded. This upward trend is due chiefly to funders' increasing recognition of the energy and expertise of faculty investigators who, thanks to a multi-year program of constructing and upgrading facilities, are now taking full advantage of MU's world-class research infrastructure.
