Institutions Receiving the Most NIH Funds

January 8, 2008

Genetic Engineering News has published the total NIH funds awarded to each of the top 25 institutions in 2007. Here is the list:

Johns Hopkins University – $566,516,255
University of Pennsylvania – $434,874,723
University of Washington – $413,626,930
University of California, San Francisco – $395,495,921
University of Michigan at Ann Arbor – $392,715,838
Duke University – $372,132,106
University of Pittsburgh at Pittsburgh – $366,705,109
Washington University – $365,486,851
Yale University – $339,469,947
University of California, San Diego – $313,517,053
University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill – $304,100,696
Stanford University – $298,523,784
Massachusetts General Hospital – $297,142,017
Vanderbilt University – $288,640,609
Columbia University Health Sciences – $280,158,693
Brigham and Women’s Hospital – $254,495,260
University of Minnesota, Twin Cities – $247,095,682
University of California, Los Angeles – $242,167,059
University of Wisconsin, Madison – $233,382,149
Emory University – $220,375,040
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center – $217,239,139
Baylor College of Medicine – $207,665,311
Scripps Research Institute – $197,935,398
University of Chicago – $194,964,247
University of Alabama at Birmingham – $192,223,812

The article also lists the top PIs, although I think there is something fishy about that list, as there should be a bunch more at the top of the list who are PIs of CTSAs. One of the things that would be very interesting would be the per-PI amount for each of these institutions. I suspect that my own institution would move substantially higher in the list on a per-PI basis.

    The CTSAs are broken into 3 (UL1, KL1, TL1) versus one massive award. However, the UL1 component alone, which bundles in the former M01 (GCRC or general clinical research center) $, should be among the top 10 individual awards for the largest CTSA grantees and certainly well within the top 20 for most. And a quick check of the NoAs here where it really isn’t cold outside today shows at least a few awards for individual projects with $ amounts above #20 in the GEN News ranking, so I’m not sure how they tabulated their individual PI list.


  2. The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP) does two rankings of NIH funding at pharmacy schools: total and $ per faculty FTE. The latter really tells you how strong some smaller schools can be.

    Abel, do you have essentially everyone active in seeking grant funding in AACP type programs? Just wondering whether major changes in the NIH-active ratio would push these numbers around. presumably putting a discount on those smaller programs where there would be fewer, but perhaps stronger “active” investigators?

    What’s up with UAB? Can’t say I’m all that familiar with this one and a bit surprised it appears…
