Emory University reported Monday that it pocketed $628 million in external research funding in fiscal year 2017, an increase from $574.6 million the year before and a new record high.

Emory attributed the big increase to "groundbreaking results and the promise of future discoveries with the potential to change the face of science and medicine."

Researchers in Emory's Woodruff Health Sciences Center (WHSC) received more than $584.8 million in FY17, or more than 93 percent of the university total. The WHSC includes schools of medicine, public health, nursing, Yerkes National Primate Research Center, Winship Cancer Institute and Emory Healthcare.

Of the 2017 total, more than 61 percent, or $384 million, came from federal agencies. Read the full story here.
