  • With the assistance of The National Group, University of Hawai'i Cancer Center has received a $3 million grant to conduct research related to the effects of mesothelioma on warfighters, military personnel generally, DOD civilian and contract employees working in shipyards and other facilities where exposure to asbestos and other causes of mesothelioma are located.
  • Researchers at National Jewish Health will seek to understand why warfighters deployed toSouthwest Asia suffer increased rates of respiratory disease and test potential treatments thanks to $11.5 million in grants from the U.S. Department of Defense.
  • RIT'S Center for Integrated Manufacturing Studies received a $2.1 million contract to continue its work on Defense Modernization and Life Cycle Engineering for the Marine Corps
  • RIT’s Center for Urban Entrepreneurship awarded $1.5 million from EDA for renovation to help refurbish downtown landmark
  • California Science Center in Los Angeles won a national competition to permanently display retired NASA Space Shuttle Endeavour.
  • Rochester Institute of Technology has received more than $75 million in research and infrastructure funding.
  • For over ten years, TNG has represented Boeing in its work with the International Space Station, new Heavy Lift Launch Vehicle and building a vehicle to deliver crew to the ISS.
  • More than $100 million in research and infrastructure funding secured for the University of Hawaii System.

  • When NASA cancelled the space shuttle launch designated to bring the multi-billion dollar Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer to the Space Station, CERN (the European Energy Research Facility) and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) faced the probability of having a billion dollar investment marooned on Earth. They turned to the National Group in 2008 to advocate on their behalf to the Obama Administration, NASA and Congress to restore the dedicated shuttle flight that would deliver this scientific payload to the ISS. Their confidence was rewarded when a dedicated shuttle mission for AMS was added in the first Obama budget for NASA. The AMS was launched in 2011 and today delivers science results that will rewrite textbooks for centuries.
