Albany -- The University of Georgia budget for 2004 is more than 1.2 billion dollars. The University President says money spent now, will pay off big in the state's economic development.

 Dr. Michael Adams says the University of Georgia research center will invest in bio-medical and bio-tech developments.

 State leaders believe that will position Georgia as the home base for business and industries that grow in those fields. Dr. Adams said "I think 20 years from now the way we are treating both humans and animals may be so different from the way we do it today, we don't even recognize it."

Dr. Adams says the University's research budget has increased 64 percent in the last five years, but that will attract more high tech industries and jobs to Georgia.
