Medicine #2 for NIH Awards

According to figures released last month from the National Institutes of Health (NIH), Penn’s School of Medicine ranks #2 in the nation in terms of total research awards to academic medical schools in the United States. For Fiscal Year 2004, Penn received 947 total awards—including research and training grants—worth more than $393.6 million. This total represents a 9.4% increase from the previous year. 

The NIH is the single largest source of funding for biomedical research and training in the nation, and their annual rankings are considered an important barometer of research strength. 

“The latest NIH rankings stand as yet another example of our ongoing efforts to strive for excellence at Penn,” said Dr. Arthur H. Rubenstein, EVP of the University for UPHS and Dean of the School. “These invaluable NIH awards help us to achieve and maintain our extremely high standards for faculty research and medical education—which ultimately benefit our patients.”
