Each year, the National Science Foundation compiles a list of the top spenders in the area of research and development in the U.S., and Hopkins tops the list.
Their report that was issued last month shows that JHU spent a total of $2.1 billion on R&D in the fiscal year that ended in 2012. That total includes $1.1 billion spent at the Applied Physics Laboratory in Howard County, as well as funds spent on biomedical research at the university’s medical center in Baltimore.
The University of Michigan ranked second on the list, spending a total $1.3 billion.
Among the other schools spending at least $1 billion on the list were the University of Wisconsin, the University of Washington, the University of California at San Diego, the University of California at San Francisco, Duke University and the University of California at Los Angeles.
