The new millennium coincides with a time of unprecedented op-
portunity for research and graduate education at the University of
This year, the State University System designated UF as one of
three Research I institutions, focusing on research and graduate educa-
tion. This state designation reaffirms UF's long-standing national reputation
for research and graduate education excellence. UF has been a member of the Association
of American Universities for 15 years and has long been designated a Research I institution
by the Carnegie Commission on Higher Education.
First-quality graduate students are essential to the university's research effort. They
provide both innovative ideas and an eager workforce to assist the UF faculty. A host of
new graduate funding initiatives, including the Alumni and Presidential fellowships, pro-
vide the university with expanded resources to compete with our peer institutions for the
very best students.
The Division of Sponsored Research is committed to facilitating the efforts of our fac-
ulty to develop the most competitive grant proposals and to managing successful proposals
in the most effective and efficient manner. These grants are the financial underpinnings of
our research enterprise, providing the physical resources to turn faculty ideas into reality.
The Graduate School provides quality services to graduate programs, faculty and stu-
dents with the goal of advancing the creation, promotion and administration of top-ranked
graduate programs throughout the university. The essence of research, creativity and gradu-
ate education lies in the classroom, the laboratory, the studio and even thousands of miles
from the campus at a field research site or through a distance learning program. The chal-
lenge is to facilitate this vast and heterogeneous set of activities through novel and flexible
administrative policies and procedures.
Vital to the university's graduate education goals in the future will be an innovative and
productive approach to nurturing a new generation of scholars and 21t-century scholar-
ship for the economic and social welfare of Florida, the nation and the world.
Faculty, staff, students, alumni and supporters play a vital role in all of our education
and research endeavors. Their promotion of the university to prospective research spon-
sors, graduate students and donors is a cornerstone of our progress. This annual report is
produced on their behalf, providing a snapshot of their extensive, outstanding work.

During the last two decades,

American universities, the federal

government and private industry

have been redefining their roles in

performing basic scientific

research, applying that research

to real-world problems, then

transferring the solutions to the

marketplace for the benefit of all


After years of growth, the share of
U.S. university research supported by
the federal government has declined
steadily from about 70 percent in
1970 to between 59 and 60 percent in
1999. During that same period,
industrial support for university
research has grown faster than any
other sector, from less than 3 percent
in 1970 to 7 percent in 1998.
Nowhere are these new relation-
ships illustrated better than at the
University of Florida. Although federal
support to UF has grown at a healthy
7.6 percent annually over the last 20
years, as a percentage of UF's total
funding, the federal contribution has

gotten smaller. In 1999, federal funds
made up 53 percent of all research
support to the university compared to
77 percent in 1977.
Conversely, non-federal funding
has grown at an annual rate of 13.3
percent, led by dramatic increases in
industry support. In 1977, industry
awards made up just 7.54 percent of
UF's total research support. This has
grown to 18 percent in 1999. Between
1997-98 and 1998-99, in particular,
industry funding increased by an
unprecedented 38 percent to $51.5
As one of the country's most
comprehensive universities, the
University of Florida has much to
offer industry. Its strong programs in
engineering, the health sciences and
agriculture provide many opportuni-
ties for relationships with industry.
Similarly, the arts benefit from and
contribute to the state and national
entertainment industry. For example,

Silicon Graphics, the computer
company that created the dinosaurs in
"Jurassic Park," and Cinesite Visual
Effects, a Kodak company that
contributed to the special-effects for
"The Mummy" and "Titanic," are
sponsors of the new Digital Arts &
Sciences Program. This collaborative
effort between the colleges of engi-
neering and fine arts is a response to
high demand for skilled workers in the
growing digital effects industry behind
movies, CD-ROM games and
educational media.
The University of Florida Research
Foundation Professors featured
throughout this annual report are vital
to the continued development of the
university's research funding relation-
ships. The 30 UFRF Professors,
selected annually by their college
deans and supported by Research and
Graduate Programs, are productive
researchers and many have multiple
government- and industry-sponsored
For example, materials science and
engineering Professor Stephen J.
Pearton has a $1 million grant from the
U.S. Department of Defense and a
$541,000 grant from the
Electric Power Research
Institute (EPRI) to
develop the next
generation of semicon-
ductor and magnetic
storage devices.
Potential applications
for these devices include
electric automobiles, I1
advanced aircraft and ships
and control of electricity
distribution on the power grid.

Dr. Carl Pepine, chief of cardiovas-
cular medicine in the College of
Medicine, is supported by the
National Institutes of Health (NIH)
and 10 pharmaceutical companies.
Pepine manages one of the largest
private grants ever awarded to the
university, a $7.4 million grant from
the German pharmaceutical firm
Knoll AG to conduct Internet-based
clinical trials comparing treatments for
coronary artery disease in patients
with hypertension.
UF's Institute of Food and Agricul-
tural Sciences has identified water
management, quality and allocation as
one of its key research imperatives. K.
Ramesh Reddy, graduate research
professor of soil and water science,
illustrates IFAS' efforts to contribute
to the protection of Florida's water
supply. Reddy's research on phospho-
rous biogeochemistry in wetlands has
drawn the support of private industry
and the U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency. Data he collected on the
long-term phosphorous storage
capacity of the soils in the Everglades
played a pivotal role in the design of
protective stormwater treatment areas.

graduate research
professor of soil
and water science,
collected data on the
Si_.ng-term phosphorous
storage capacity of the soils in
the Everglades that played a
pivotal role in the design of

UF's technology licensing program
illustrates the potential for public and
private partnerships that result in
benefits for all. Royalty and licensing
income from UF-developed intellec-
tual property reached a record $21.7
million in 1998-99. TrusoptTM, a
glaucoma drug licensed to Merck
Pharmaceuticals, accounted for more
than $13 million.
The late Thomas Maren, a graduate
research professor of medicinal
chemistry, received years of basic
research support from NIH before he
began collaborating with Merck on
TrusoptTM, which has been hailed as a
breakthrough in the treatment of
glaucoma, the primary cause of
blindness in African Americans and
the second leading cause of blindness
in the United States.
As much as licensing a product
represents a successful result to the
research process, it also represents a
beginning, since much of the income
the university receives from products
such as TrusoptTM and GatoradeTM
supports the university infrastructure
to promote new research endeavors.

A dramatic increase in industry support helped
push UF to record totals in 1998-99. Corporate
funding increased 38 percent to a record $51.5
million, accounting for much of the total increase in a
year when funding from federal, state, local and
foundation sources remained near 1997-98 levels.
The National Institutes of Health (NIH) and the

transfer Income

This past year brought another significant increase
in royalty and licensing income to a record total of
$21.7 million. The income generated came primarily
from TrusoptTM, a glaucoma drug licensed to Merck
Pharmaceuticals, which accounted for 60 percent. The
sports drink GatoradeTM, licensed to Quaker Oats,
continues to account for a significant 28 percent. The
remainder of the revenue is generated from license

More funding for fellowships

and a host of innovative new

degree programs are leading to

record graduate enrollment at the

University of Florida that is

expected to continue growing

well into the next century.
Overall, the university achieved its
1998-1999 graduate enrollment
growth objectives. Fall 1998 enroll-
ment was 7,503 with 3,001 doctoral
students and 4,502 master's students.
From August 1998 through May
1999, 446 doctoral degrees (Ph.D/
Ed.D) were awarded, along with 54
Engineer and Specialist in Education
degrees, and 2,013 master's degrees.
The university now offers 78 doctoral
degree programs and more than 110
master's programs supported by the
efforts of some 2,500 graduate faculty.
Graduate education at the University
of Florida continues to be among the
largest and strongest in the nation.
This past year was very active in
terms of graduate program innovation.
In response to advances in technology,
evolution in research patterns, and
student and industry demand, the
Graduate School approved 53 new
programs, concentrations, certificates,
and joint degree programs in 1998-

Recent endowment gifts and
increased funding from the Florida
Legislature afford the university a
unique opportunity through its
Graduate Fellowship Initiative to

recruit outstanding
new graduate
students with full
support packages.
Alumni Graduate
Fellowships, the
premier fellowships
for students pursuing
terminal degrees,
provide four total
years of support,
including full tuition
and fees plus a
nationally competi-
tive stipend.
The Named
Presidential Fellow-
ship program was
conceived as a
mechanism to help
the university attract
top doctoral appli-
cants by funding
high-level, long-term
stipend support. The
second cohort of 10

The university awarded a record
2,513 graduate degrees in 1998-99, up
from 2,403 in 1997-98. About 80
percent of these were master's degrees,
18 percent Ph.D.s and 2 percent

Master's Degrees Awarded

Nonthesis master's degrees account for
much of the increase in total number of
graduate degrees awarded in recent years.
Compared to five years ago, nonthesis
master's degrees increased by 23 percent
while thesis master's degrees declined by 7
percent. During the same period, the total
number of master's degrees grew by 12
percent. Forty-eight percent of the master's
degrees awarded in 1998-99 were awarded to
women. This proportion has remained at the
same level since 1995-96
