WFU research funding reaches new high

Wake Forest had an exceptional year for research funding across the board with externally sponsored awards totaling $16,486,711 for fiscal year 2015-16.

“This total represents the best in Wake Forest history,” said Lori Messer, director of the University’s Office of Research and Sponsored Programs. “The previous record was $14,336,586 in 2014.”

Researchers from across the Reynolda Campus submitted 118 proposals, overall. Significant awards were received by research teams across different disciplines, including biology, health and exercise science, psychology and physics. This total does not include research funding for the School of Medicine.

“Funding competitiveness is at an all time high and to see Wake Forest faculty continue to excel and build research programs of nationally recognized excellence is rewarding,” said Bruce King, associate provost for research.

A more comprehensive look into the University’s research funding will be available in the fall when the Office of Research publishes its annual report.
