George Mason University Receives Top Research Ranking

R1 HamdanLab

How you achieve R1 research status. Thanks to the Mason students and researchers who worked to make it happen!

George Mason University recently received the honor of being ranked among the highest research institutions by the Carnegie Classification of Institutions of Higher Education. This ranking was based on the exponential growth in research expenditures at Mason, increasing by $22 million in the last seven years. We are on the list with 115 other elite institutions in the US that have received this ranking. Hamdan Lab is proud to have contributed to the development and recognition of George Mason University. We are reminded daily of Mason’s advancements by the inspiring and innovating work our fellow Mason researchers conduct. Ranked as one of U.S. News & World’s top 10 “Up-and-Coming Institutions”, George Mason’s development is impossible to overlook. The same could be said for Hamdan Lab, which nearly doubled its number of members within the last 10 months. Big things are happening for both Mason and Hamdan Lab, and we couldn’t be more excited to be a participating affiliate of this new ranking.

It’s a great day to be a Patriot!
