The University of California, San Francisco was recently ranked number two in the country for receiving biomedical research grants from the NIH, and it was also the number one ranked public school in the country for receiving these grants. According to the University of California, San Francisco news page, this funding allows UCSF researchers to undertake groundbreaking studies that aim at a better understanding of cancer, diabetes, HIV, Parkinson’s, Alzheimer’s and cardiovascular disease.
All four UCSF professional schools were ranked highly compared to other schools in the country for receiving these competitive grants. The University of California, San Francisco’s pharmacy and dentistry programs were both the top NIH-funded schools in their fields in 2012. The school of pharmacy has been ranked number one in the country for 33 consecutive years, and the school of dentistry is in its 21st year of being ranked number one. Respectively, these schools received $31.6 million and $13.7 million in 2012. The School of Nursing also ranked number two in 2012 with $8.1 million in grants.
“This funding is the lifeblood of biomedical research nationwide and is critical for advancing knowledge in human health,” said University of California, San Francisco Chancellor Susan Desmond-Hellmann, MD, MPH. “At UCSF, these grants are supporting the work of our scientists as they address the most pressing questions across the health sciences and work to translate those into more precise care for people around the world.”
