NSF & NIH research on the Mammal Collection

The U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF) and National Institutes of Health (NIH) fund research in a wide range of disciplines that rely heavily on museum specimens. Since 2005, over 25 projects funded by NSF or NIH have used specimens from UAMN's Mammal Collection alone, to the tune of $13,462,127 invested in specimen-based research.
