USF jumps up research spending ranking to No. 50

TAMPA — The University of South Florida jumped up a national ranking for research expenditures, with a total of $385 million.

That amount puts the Bulls at No. 50 for fiscal year 2010 — up from No. 65 a few years ago — on a list compiled by the National Science Foundation.

USF joins schools such as John Hopkins, Stanford, Yale and Harvard in the top 50. Only the University of Florida, 21st on the list, beats it in the state while Florida State University came in at No. 84.

The largest group of USF's research grants were attracted by its pediatric epidemiology center, which is working to find causes and treatments for Type 1 diabetes and other immune diseases, according to a USF news release.

Other big research dollar earners at USF include: the Byrd Alzheimer's Institute, a nursing initiative to evaluate PTSD treatments, a partnership with Draper Laboratory looking into therapies for malaria and USF's work on the impact of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

"The ranking shows USF's maturity as a research university and the success of our research faculty in responding to the needs of a great metropolitan area," said vice president for research Paul Sanberg.

  5. The legacy of Tim Tebow's baseball summer

    Minors

    CLEARWATER — It was about three weeks ago. A Saturday night. I sat behind home plate at a Charlotte Stone Crabs game at Charlotte Sports Park. There was a professional baseball scout sitting just behind me with a speed gun in his hand. He had seen the whole thing.

    Seth Bosch, left, of Punta Gorda, Fla., met Tim Tebow in Port Charlotte, Fla., in late July when Tebow, while in the on-deck circle during a game, shook hands with Seth through the backstop screen. The moment was captured on video by Seth's mother, as was the home run Tebow promptly hit in his ensuing at bat. Seth, who has high-functioning autism and other health issues, celebrated wildly and the video went viral. PHOTO PROVIDED
