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.
