The article offers information on a new report from the U.S. National Science Foundation (NSF). According to the study, science and engineering (S&E) research space at research-performing universities and colleges increased 3.5% between 2009 and 2011. The report suggests that biological and biomedical fields have done their part to speed up the growth of research space in universities, but the overall rise is still less than the median growth.
