Research Funding


OTT has collected quarterly and annual metrics that provide a clear view of our activities. We then visualized that data through accessible charts and tables. These charts and tables reveal how our work benefits OTT as well as our partners, faculty, and entrepreneurs.

This table shows the amount awarded to support research activities at Emory by sponsor type and fiscal year. These research activities include basic research, clinical research, and other types of research-based activity.
