FSM Rises in NIH Funding Rankings
Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine has increased its position in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) rankings to 21st among all medical schools for awards received directly from NIH.
That ranking, an all-time high for Feinberg, is up from 24 in 2011 and 41 in 1997, and continues to mark the school’s steady climb as a research-intensive medical school.
“This vital NIH funding enables our investigators to make breakthrough discoveries while mentoring and training the next generation of scientists and physician-scientists,” said Eric G. Neilson, MD, vice president for medical affairs and Lewis Landsberg Dean. “Our new ranking is a validation of our superb Feinberg faculty and their diligent efforts to conduct important biomedical research.”
NIH also ranks individual departments within medical schools. The Department of Medicine was ranked 17th. Ten other FSM departments were also ranked in the top 20, including eight in the top 10.
