UCSF School of Dentistry Is Top NIH Funding Recipient for 25th Year
The School of Dentistry and UCSF's three other professional schools once again ranked first in their fields in 2016 funding from the National Institutes of Health. Overall, UCSF was the top public recipient of biomedical research grants in 2016, and ranked second among all public and private institutions.
The $19.5 million the School of Dentistry received in 2016 far exceeded that received by second-place University of Pennsylvania. This is the 25th year the school has led all others in NIH funding. This is the fourth consecutive year that all UCSF schools — dentistry, medicine, nursing and pharmacy — have ranked first nationally.
The school's top recipients of NIH funding for 2016 include:
- Jon Levine, $1,717,805
- Ophir Klein, $1,436,875
- Carol Gross, $1,016,139
