Michigan State University is helping to make East Lansing a highly funded market for biotechnology vendors and lab suppliers in Michigan, according to the latest NIH and NSF research funding statistics. In 2012, the NIH awarded Michigan State University $46.1 million in research funding. The money will go towards a number of research projects across various departments at the university. We have broken down the number of projects awarded money in each science research discipline and the total amount of funding for those projects in the list below:
- Biochemistry – 12 awards, $3.1 million
- Biostatistics – 2 awards, $361,549
- Chemistry – 7 awards, $2.3 million
- Internal medicine – 6 awards, $2.7 million
- Microbiology – 7 awards, $1.7 million
- Veterinary Sciences – 7 awards, $3 million
In addition to the $46.1 million awarded by the NIH, the NSF gave Michigan State University $62.1 million in 2012. The projects awarded research funding span a number of science research disciplines. Of the bio projects, the programs of study range from plant genome research, biological infrastructure, environmental biology, cellular dynamics and function, macrosystem biology, systems and synthetic biology, neural systems clusters, systematics and biodiversity science, evolutionary science clusters, global systems science, genetic mechanisms and molecular biophysics. Below is a list of the top five NSF-funded bio research projects.
Top Five NSF-Funded Bio Research Projects
- Bio Centers: An NSF Center for the Study of Evolution in Action -- $5 million
- Plant Genome Research: Unraveling the Heterozygosity, Allelic Composition, and Copy Number Variation of Potato -- $2.7 million
- Ecosystem Science Cluster: Long-term Ecological Research in Row-crop Agriculture --$1 million
- Evolutionary Processes Cluster: Ecological Genomics of Adaptation to the Environment -- $803,206
