Do the Research

The University of Washington (UW) receives more federal research funds than any institution in the United States other than John Hopkins. So, it’s no surprise that the UW is a major recipient of new research money under the Obama Administration’s stimulus plan. The UW is expected to receive $300 million in research money under the plan, much of it in the biomedical realm. Currently, the UW’s research budget is $1 billion.

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, with a $330 million annual research budget, is also expected to see a large amount of stimulus money.  The Greater Seattle region is a center of research with its companies making technical breakthroughs and partnering with institutions all over the world.
