The Ohio State University had a record-breaking year for research in fiscal year 2019. New data released by the Office of Research show research expenditures of $929 million for fiscal year 2019, an increase of 6.2 percent from the previous fiscal year. Industry-sponsored research totaled $159.9 million in FY2019, up 14% from the previous fiscal year.
