Research Spending Reaches Record Level at UB

By Gabe DiMaio

Buffalo, NY – Research spending at the University at Buffalo is at record high levels.

For the first time, UB's research expenditures in sciences and engineering surpassed the $300 million mark. The $314 million in research spending in 2007 represented a nearly six percent increase from the previous fiscal year.

Vice President of Research Jorge Jose says research dollars have a multiplier effect in the community.

Funds for research not related to science and engineering were also up by 25 percent from the previous year, with total expenditures of more than $8.5 million.
