Texas A&M University becomes the very first university in the State of Texas to pass the $1 billion milestone in total annual research expenditures. The university reported $1.131 billion in research expenditures for fiscal year 2020, representing an increase of $179 million or 18.8% over 2019’s total of $952 million. Total research expenditures involved include research spanning the main College Station campus to satellite academic centers in Galveston, TX, and Qatar and via its state agencies within the Texas A&M University System. Life science related research represents $502.3 million or 44.4% of the total.
Now joining an elite crowd, only a handful of major universities surpass the billion dollar milestone including University of Michigan; the University of North Carolina; the University of California, Los Angeles; the University of California, San Diego and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
