The University of Mississippi Medical Center received a record $85 million in grants and contracts in fiscal year 2011.

This figure is approximately a 12 percent increase from the 2010 figure.

Despite receiving 34 fewer grants and contracts, the value of the grants received allowed for an overall increase in the research budget.

At least 95 percent of the grants and contracts were from sources outside of the state, according to John E. Hall, associate vice chancellor of research at UMMC.
