HSC records $6 million increase in NIH awards

November 2005

The Health Science Center received more than $88 million in National Institutes of Health (NIH) awards in fiscal year 2004, an increase of 7.5 percent over the previous year and 84 percent higher than FY 1999.

The Health Science Centerís Medical School/Graduate School of Biomedical Sciences was the only University of Texas institution that received more funding in 2004 than in 2003. It moved from 50 to 48 in national rank.

"Our advancement indicates that our institution has organized itself to become more competitive for extramural funding in todayís scientific climate," said Brian Herman, Ph.D., vice president for research. "We are doing well in a period of more intense competition and limited NIH funds."
