ASU among top contenders for NSF research dollars

NSF top 10 ExpendituresAlongside the likes of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and the University of California at Berkley, ASU has landed on the National Science Foundation’s Top 10 list for research expenditures in the United States among universities without a medical school. ASU also has the largest university research portfolio in the state of Arizona when medical school spending is not factored in — the first year that has been the case. “The work that ASU’s researchers are doing is changing the world at an incredibly fast rate,” said ASU President Michael Crow. “From the sciences to the humanities, from NASA research and Department of Defense funding, the impact this university can make on the state, country and world will continue to increase.”
