The University of Michigan Office of Research has released its Annual Report for Fiscal Year 2020. The research carried out at U-M has led to important advancements in areas ranging from the COVID-19 pandemic to driverless vehicle technology, social justice and carbon neutrality.

U-M was able to maintain the same total research volume as FY19 during a fiscal year in which the novel coronavirus prompted the university to temporarily ramp down noncritical laboratory research. The university also received 1,918 new research awards between July 1, 2019 and June 30 — the largest being a $31 million federal grant that supports research on the restoration of dental, oral and craniofacial tissues lost to disease, injury or congenital disorders.
