University of Florida to talk stimulus dollars at the White House

Vice President Joe Biden will host a roundtable Tuesday with university presidents from six leading research institutions to discuss Recovery Act investments in university research programs.

The presidents include J. Bernard Machen of the University of Florida. The White House says the stimulus package provided more than $18 billion for scientific research through the National Institutes of Health, the
National Science Foundation, and the Department of Energy’s Office of Science.

"Participants will discuss how research at their institutions, supported by the Recovery Act, is not only creating jobs now, but is planting seeds for entire new industries in the future," the White House.
