This funding, which is highly competitive, was used to support 1,309 research projects that are working towards finding potential treatments and forming a better understanding of the causes of various diseases.

The funding for 2018 totaled $647,880,065 – an increase of 9.1% from the previous year. The University was the only public institution to receive more than $600 million in funding from the NIH. It ranks second among all universities- funding, just behind the private institution, Johns Hopkins University.

A majority of this funding will be distributed to the following departments at the University of San Francisco:

  • School of Medicine - $577.7 million
  • School of Pharmacy - $28.9 million
  • School of Dentistry - $24.4 million
  • School of Nursing - $9.1 million
  • Graduate Division program - $27.2 million

These grants, together with the UCSF Discover Fellows Program, ensure that all basic and biomedical doctoral students are financially supported during their first two years. The benefit of this funding is far reaching, and the University remains on top for health science discoveries.
