2019 URC Benchmark Report Summary

803 views

Published on

The three universities that make up Michigan’s University Research Corridor (URC) ― Michigan State University, the University of Michigan and Wayne State University ― continue to lead the nation’s university innovation clusters in the number of medicine and biological science degrees awarded annually.

Those are just some of the findings in the annual Benchmark Report through which the URC measures its performance against the nation’s top university research clusters, including California’s Silicon Valley, Massachusetts’ Route 128 and North Carolina’s Research Triangle. Michigan’s URC is the only national innovation cluster comprised exclusively of public universities ― and the only one with three medical doctors heading those institutions.

Our nation has eight top research clusters against which the URC benchmarks itself each year. These clusters are defined by the presence of multiple leading research universities making contributions and critical breakthroughs in their region. 65% of children entering primary school today will work in positions that currently do not exist, according to the World Economic Forum. URC UNIVERSITIES are solving the problems of the future and preparing students for careers that didn't exist 20 years ago. | About Michigan’s URC | Peer University Clusters |
  4. 4. 06 07 WHERE WE LEAD PRODUCING TALENT The URC continues to be the nation’s #1 cluster in medicine and biological science for awarding both undergraduate and advanced degrees. The URC also leads in medical graduates. It is the only cluster among the peers that offers a doctorate in osteopathic medicine (DO) program, and leads in MD and nursing graduates. Michigan’s URC ranks #1 in student enrollment (undergraduate and graduate) and #2 in the number of degrees awarded. | Where We Lead | Producing Talent | 40,000 35,000 30,000 25,000 20,000 15,000 10,000 5,000 0 TXPANCMAILCA SOUTH CA NORTH URC TXPANCMAILCA SOUTH CA NORTH URC 180,000 160,000 140,000 120,000 100,000 80,000 60,000 40,000 20,000 0 155,358 47,235 108,123 131,939 48,606 83,343 27,052 66,578 39,535 41,705 52,554 94,259 50,532 41,353 91,885 33,176 53,574 86,750 29,001 111,209 140,210 38,869 109.767 148,636 36,411 22,519 13,892 37,868 20,758 17,110 27,052 17,713 8,138 11,819 13,263 25,055 14,140 21,228 7,088 12,066 10,507 22,573 22,062 9,631 31,693 24,165 11,697 35,862 GRADUATE ENROLLMENT UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT BACHELOR DEGREES ADVANCED DEGREES STUDENT ENROLLMENT FOR THE URC AND PEER CLUSTERS, 2017 COMPLETIONS BY LEVEL OF DEGREE FOR THE URC AND PEER CLUSTERS, 2017 40,000 35,000 30,000 25,000 20,000 15,000 10,000 5,000 0 TXPANCMAILCA SOUTH CA NORTH URC TXPANCMAILCA SOUTH CA NORTH URC 180,000 160,000 140,000 120,000 100,000 80,000 60,000 40,000 20,000 0 155,358 47,235 108,123 131,939 48,606 83,343 27,052 66,578 39,535 41,705 52,554 94,259 50,532 41,353 91,885 33,176 53,574 86,750 29,001 111,209 140,210 38,869 109.767 148,636 36,411 22,519 13,892 37,868 20,758 17,110 27,052 17,713 8,138 11,819 13,263 25,055 14,140 21,228 7,088 12,066 10,507 22,573 22,062 9,631 31,693 24,165 11,697 35,862 GRADUATE ENROLLMENT UNDERGRADUATE ENROLLMENT BACHELOR DEGREES ADVANCED DEGREES Source: Anderson Economic Group (AEG) Benchmarking Report 2019 5,117 undergraduate degrees in medicine 3,588 155,358 students enrolled in 2017 36,411 degrees awarded in 2017 advanced degrees in medicine and biological science 4 out of 10 doctors in Michigan graduated from a URC university
  5. 5. 08 09 TRAINING DOCTORS TO SAVE LIVES “Addiction is not a moral failing; addiction is a disease. But we can combat addiction when we work together.” - GRETCHEN WHITMER, Michigan governor The number of opioid-related deaths in Michigan has hit an all-time high, requiring the resources of the state’s three major research universities and one of its largest health systems to tackle the problem. Under a two-year, $1.5 million grant, Michigan State University, the University of Michigan, Wayne State University and Grand Rapids-based Spectrum Health will train more physicians as addiction medicine specialists by streamlining the certification process. Currently, fewer than 200 physicians in Michigan are certified in addiction medicine or addiction psychiatry, and there’s only one specialist in the entire Upper Peninsula, which is far from enough to deal with the opioid epidemic. Most doctors receive fewer than five hours of addiction training in medical school. Due to the urgency of Michigan’s problem, the Michigan CARES program will assist physicians in fulfilling the requirements through online courses, clinical experiences and leadership opportunities. While the program centers around opioids, physicians will receive skills to treat other forms of addiction, including methamphetamines, stimulants and alcohol. Opioid misuse, which includes prescription painkillers, heroin, fentanyl and other synthetic drugs, was blamed for 49,000 deaths nationwide in 2017. Michigan recorded nearly 2,000 opioid-related deaths in 2017, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services. | Where We Lead | Training Doctors to Save Lives |

  7. 7. 12 13 LICENSING INNOVATIONS “Innovation at the university level and the subsequent transfer from our university’s laboratories to the marketplace is critically important for the American economy and the improvement of the human condition around the world. University tech transfer is credited with the creation of thousands of new companies and billions of dollars of direct benefits to the U.S. economy.” - ANDREI IANCU, Under Secretary of Commerce for Intellectual Property & Director of the US Patent and Trademark Office In the past five years, URC researchers disclosed more than 3,000 technologies and inventions, which were then licensed to companies to help them make safer cars, stop identity theft, develop life-saving new drugs and medical devices, repair our roads, fight invasive species, feed families around the world and more. Research efforts at Wayne State University led to the development of a medical instrument that assists physicians in the identification of bacterial, parasitic, and other pathogen infections in near real-time. This innovation is licensed to Seraph Biosciences, Inc. (seraspec.com), a biomedical device company headquartered in Detroit. There, it created a product called Seraspec®, which ensures better treatment decisions by eliminating the wait for traditional lab results. Michigan blueberry growers produce about 100 million pounds of blueberries every year, making the state a leader in blueberry production. And for more than half a century, Michigan State University has been a key player in bringing new blueberry varieties to market. Three of the world’s most widely-planted Northern Highbush blueberry varieties – Aurora, Draper and Liberty – were developed and perfected there, resulting in the successful lengthening of Michigan’s harvest season. University of Michigan startup May Mobility (maymobility.com) already has tested its bright green-and-white driverless shuttles on public streets in downtown Detroit and Columbus, Ohio, and has ambitious plans for growth. The company licensed five autonomous driving- related technologies from U-M that will help build out a fleet of autonomous public transit vehicles planned for business districts, corporate and college campuses, medical facilities and other communities across the country. | Where We Lead | Licensing Innovations |
