Life science research dollars grow in Spokane, continuing a trend that started a decade ago. That was the news presented by Dr. Daryll DeWald, Chancellor and Vice President of WSU Spokane Health Sciences, as he spoke to Life Sciences Spokane Executive Advisory Council. He presented this graph showing a 72% increase in research funding since 2011.
“Through our growth in the Health Sciences we are contributing significantly to the fulfillment of Washington State University’s 5-year Strategic Plan, Drive to 25, and well on our way to achieving the University's highest strategic priority goal of becoming one of the nation's top 25 public research universities by 2030. This has a significant economic impact to our region and we are honored to be able to contribute so much to Spokane’s growth.”
