The University of California, San Diego ranked fifth among 600 U.S. universities in federal research and development expenditures for fiscal 2003-2004--up two points from the last ranking--according to newly released figures from the National Science Foundation.

The Foundation reported that UCSD spent a total $465.6 million in federal R&D funds during the period. Other research universities in the top 10, in order, were Johns Hopkins, Washington, Stanford, Michigan, UCSD, UCLA, Pennsylvania, Wisconsin-Madison, MIT and UCSF.

UCSD moved from seventh in the 2002-2003 ranking to the current fifth place, and has remained among the top 10 research universities in R&D expenditures for well over a decade. The research rankings tracked by the NSF are typically several years behind the calendar year.

The total R&D expenditures for UCSD from all sources totaled $728.4 million for fiscal 2004-2005.
