UC Davis researchers received $420.7 million in extramural funding in fiscal year 2004. The figure,
a slight decrease over the previous year's record total of $426.3 million, reflects a reduction in state
funding of $24.8 million. However, that was offset by increases in federal and business funding of $14
million and $11.7 million, respectively.
The School of Medicine, College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, and the School of Veterinary Medicine were the top three funding recipients.
Federal and state agencies remain the primary sponsors of research, accounting for more than 71 percent of funds received. However, nonstate and non-federal sources contributed a record $121 million.
The federal government provided 1,095 research awards, with almost half of that number, 448 awards totaling $140.2 million, from the Department of Health and Human Services.
