Ohio: Leading in Research with $864.3M in R&D funding

Posted by Dianna Matyola on Mon, Apr 08, 2019

The Ohio State University consistently ranks among our nations top public research universities. The University has the third largest university campus in the US, housing seven health science colleges. As far as funding goes, by the end of February 2019, Ohio’s largest university has already received $374,737,960 million for research from federal and non-federal sponsors for the fiscal year. In total research and development in 2017, the Ohio State University received $864.3 million, making them the 22nd highest in NIH funding for all universities.


Key Funding Facts:

- Ranked 22nd for NIH funding among research universities

- $864.3M Total R&D Expenditures in 2017

- $374.7M Total R&D Expenditures in 2019 so far

- $503.6M Life science expenditures in 2017

Researchers at The Ohio State University are always working hard to understand the world better through the eyes of science. In most recent news, researchers have been investigating the science behind why electrical bandages, a type of electroceutical therapy, heal stubborn wounds faster. There is little known as to why these bandages, which have been in use since about 2013, are so effective at killing harmful bacteria, and researchers are coming up with answers.

The science behind it lies in the biofilm present on an infected wound. The biofilm is made up of a group of bacteria that is held together by extracellular polymeric substances (EPS), a substance that is made up of fat and proteins that act as a protective barrier, keeping the bacteria shielded from clinical treatment or antibiotics. After studying the bacteria, the Ohio State University researchers concluded that the electroceutical bandage produces hypochlorous acid, an antimicrobial chemical, that penetrates the biofilm and kills the bacteria without disturbing the skin nearby. This clearer understanding of the bandages will help to create better designs for the future.

Biotechnology Calendar Inc.’s 17th annual BioResearch Product Faire™ event on July 25, 2019 at The Ohio State University is an event not to be missed. Researchers will be on site looking for the latest technologies to assist them with their current projects. Laboratory equipment suppliers wishing to meet face to face with the researchers at The Ohio State University are invited to participate. Last year we had over 300 attendees! If you are a laboratory equipment supplier, this is an excellent opportunity to meet with Ohio’s scientists.
