University Earns 13 Percent More in Research Dollars

In fiscal year 2002, the University of Cincinnati earned 13.3 percent more funding to support research than in fiscal 2001.

UC and its affiliated institutions earned $260.9 million in grants and contracts, according to UC Vice President for Research and University Dean for Advanced Studies Howard Jackson. 

"The resources provided by this increase enable UC to conduct research at the frontiers of knowledge, to train graduate students and postdoctoral associates as future researchers and to contribute to society and indirect ways," said Jackson.

In addition to the funding increase, UC's Intellectual Property Office reported 98 invention disclosures, 32 U.S. patents filed and 12 U.S. patents issued during fiscal year 2002. 

"The numbers reflect a talented faculty competing successfully on a national level for funding of research, instruction and public service," said Jackson, adding that the patents and invention disclosures range from medication for short-term relief of obsessive-compulsive disorders to a new fuel-injection design for use in autos, aircrafts and in other applications.
