Facts & Figures
Research is an expensive undertaking.
In order to succeed, researchers depend on highly motivated students, the assistance of specialized staff, access to state-of-the-art equipment and facilities, and adequate operating funds. In short, they need an environment that encourages and enables research excellence.
Building and sustaining that environment depends, in large part, on external investments secured through tough, peer-review competitions. Memorial has steadily grown its total research funding to more than $130 million dollars in 2019-20.
This funding supports new discoveries impacting our understanding of human health, technologies that are improving safety in harsh offshore environments, and fundamental research describing our complex and rapidly changing world.
