MUSC grants set record

Jul. 1, 2005

The Medical University of South Carolina took in $180 million in research grants last year, a record that reflects the growing role of medical studies at the institution. Continuing that growth could be tough, university officials said, because federal research funding has stagnated and competition for grants has grown more fierce. The $180 million the university received in the fiscal year that ended June 30 is another record for a South Carolina institution, beating MUSC's record last year by $5 million. Grants to MUSC researchers have grown every year since 1996. Research dollars have tripled over that period.
