Research Funding Rises

Through these and hundreds of additional projects, our scientists in the School of Medicine and Dentistry attracted $216.2 million in NIH funding in 2010 (NIH fiscal year), a considerable seven percent increase from 2009. As many institutions have seen a drop in funding over the past few years, ours has continued to climb. Overall, NIH funding to our medical school is up a staggering 42 percent compared to 2008.
