* Grants = number of active grants. A grant is considered active when its budget date is current. These data are updated daily. Grants are automatically dropped from the list when its budget date falls outside of the current date. A grant may not appear if it is in the renewal process. Once the renewal is activated, the grant will once again show up on the list.

+ Pub = sum total of publications from all grants
