Florida A&M University’s research funding currently exceeds $50 million. We continue to seek and earn research awards from national funding powerhouses, such as the U. S. Departments of Education, Health & Human Services,  Agriculture, Defense, State, Commerce, Interior, Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the National Science Foundation and the National Institutes of Health, to name some agencies.

Some of our most recent awards include: one for national security with the U.S. Army on the detection of radioactive nuclear materials and a research award for future Army combat systems for ground and aerial vehicles; FAMU was also awarded $5 million from the NSF for a new research center in science and technology and new academic programs in astrophysics and astrochemistry at the graduate and undergraduate levels.

We are also proud of the fact that a faculty member in our College of Pharmacy has entered into an exclusive license agreement with a biopharmaceutical company for his work in creating compounds to treat some of the effects of Parkinson’s disease.

The FAMU faculty is involved in cutting-edge research activities that are leading to advances in physical, chemical, biological and social sciences, the quality of health care, the food and agriculture industry, environmental health and safety, bioengineering and much more. The Division of Research provides FAMU investigators the maximum level of service and a solid infrastructure for all research activities of the University.
