Organized Research: generally includes research and development activities of Biomedical and Physical Science (Chemistry, Physics, Psychology, Etc.) and Engineering departments where such activities utilize the same facilities as other research and development activities. Such facilities are laboratories, which consume a disproportionate amount of space related resources (e.g. utilities, ventilation, hazardous waste disposal and housekeeping services). Sponsored research also includes those activities known as research training (e.g. NIH T28) grants because such training is conducted in laboratories alongside research activities and utilize the same facilities as other research and development activities.
