UC research expenditures increased about $2.2 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars between 1996-97 and 2008-09, an increase of about 83 percent during that period.
Much of this increase was due to the doubling of the National Institutes of Health budget that occurred between 1998-99 and 2002-03. Private support for research has also doubled over the last 10 years.
