Montana State University records yet another strong year for research

September 13, 2018View for printing

Montana State University recorded one of its strongest years ever for research, fueled by the groundbreaking work of students and scientists in fields such as microbiology, immunology, chemistry and agriculture.

For the fiscal year that ended in June, MSU's research and contract expenditures from state, private and federal funding sources totaled $126.5 million, according to Vice President for Research and Economic Development Renee Reijo Pera. It marks the fifth year in a row that research expenditures at MSU have topped $100 million.

"There is intense competition for research dollars nationwide," Reijo Pera said. "The fact that our faculty continue, year after year, to compete so fiercely is further evidence that MSU is home to some of the best and brightest minds in the world."
