Johns Hopkins top R&D spender

As it has for decades, Johns Hopkins University has topped the list of big spenders among U.S. academic institutions pulled together by a long-term government survey. JHU spent a combined $1.44 billion on science, medicine and engineering R&D during 2005, according to National Science Foundation rankings. No other academic research organization spent more than $1 billion. Not surprisingly, given the amount of money spent, the school's dollars have flowed into a wide range of projects, including stem cell research, cell engineering, nanotechnology and robotics. The University of Michigan came in second at $808 million, and the University of Washington third at $606 million.
