At a crucial moment, Syracuse University's priority: revive research - Marnie Eisenstadt, Syracuse

When Patrick Mather was being recruited to come to SU from Case Western Reserve, a big research school in Ohio, his first thought was, "Syracuse. What do they do?" Compared with Case Western and other universities where research is the bread and butter, SU's research funding was "minuscule," Mather said. Going there was a risk, he said. But Mather took the job as the director of the Syracuse Biomaterials Institute at SU. That was 2007, and the gamble has paid off. Since then, research dollars coming into the institute have increased by 20 percent every year, Mather said.
