The Department continues to rank highly for NIH funding among all Biochemistry departments in the US. In 2016, the Department secured 14.96 million in federal funding and ranks 8th.

We received over $14.96 million in funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2016. According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research (BRIMR), this ranks us eighth among all Biochemistry departments and if considering just public institutions, that would make us the 4th highest NIH funded biochemistry program. We are proud of our faculty for their hard work and accomplishments! Of special note, three of our faculty ranked in the top 100 investigators: Ronald Swanstrom ranks 10th, Brian Kuhlman ranks 37th, and Aziz Sancar ranks 53rd among all principal investigators in Biochemistry for total NIH dollars.
