Message from the Vice Provost for Research I invite you to read this report Contract and Grant Awards FY00, which lists contract and grant (C&G) awards received by the University of New Mexico (UNM) during the period from July 1, 1999 - June 30, 2000. These awards represent new funds that were acquired during FY00 by the main campus, branch campuses and education centers and the Health Sciences Center (HSC). The HSC includes the School of Medicine, College of Nursing and College of Pharmacy. The awards received for FY00 total $217.4M, of which $139.9M is attributed to the main campus. These awards assist in providing resources that are necessary to enhance the quality of research and teaching at UNM, as well as the opportunities for students to be trained in state-of-the-art laboratories in a multitude of disciplines. Please join me in thanking our dedicated faculty, staff and students involved in the sponsored research, public service and instruction efforts at UNM. It is their successful endeavors that enhance UNM's visibility at the national and international levels, as well as contribute to the economic growth of New Mexico and the region. Thanks are also due to a number of individuals who have helped in preparing this report. In particular, I would like to acknowledge the efforts of Denise Wallen, Ann Powell and Valerie Roybal of the Office of Research Services, and Marcia Sletten and Lee Gulbransen of the Health Sciences Center. I welcome your comments and questions with respect to this report, and other issues related to research activities at the University of New Mexico. John K. McIver Interim Vice Provost for Research
