[Source: The Arizona Daily Star] – University of Arizona researchers snared more than $83 million of the $21.5 billion in stimulus funds designated for scientific research in the $787 billion American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, said Leslie Tolbert, UA vice president for research.
At a briefing held Monday at the UA’s Bio5 Institute, Tolbert said the money had so far created or retained more than 157 jobs at the UA, in addition to buying expensive equipment for 125 projects, ranging from astronomy to anthropology.
