MSU hits record $759M in research expenditures in 2022

Michigan State University (MSU) has achieved a record-breaking $759.2 million in research and development expenditures for fiscal year 2022. This marks a $49 million increase from the previous year and signifies progress towards the university’s strategic plan goal of reaching $1 billion in research expenditures by 2030. The growth was primarily driven by federally funded expenditures, with a 9% increase to $381.5 million. Funding from the Department of Health and Human Services, including the National Institutes of Health, rose by 23.7% to $105 million, while Department of Energy funding increased by 17.8% to $127.8 million. Expenditures funded by the Departments of Defense and Agriculture also saw growth. Although the final rankings for 2022 are yet to be published, based on FY 2021 data, MSU currently ranks 39th in research expenditures among participating colleges and universities nationwide. The university attributes its research growth to collaborations, including the opening of the Facility for Rare Isotope Beams (FRIB), investments in various disciplines, and strategic partnerships in healthcare. MSU aims to continue its upward trajectory and make significant contributions to society in the coming years.
