Health Science Center tops
$200 million in external funding

March 2009

For the first time in its history, the Health Science Center has eclipsed the $200 million mark in grants, contracts and other awards. Despite increasing competition for research dollars awarded by federal agencies, the Health Science Center experienced a jump of 28 percent in funding from the National Institutes of Health during the 2008 state fiscal year ($107.2 million). "The horizon for upcoming years continues to look bright," said then President Francisco G. Cigarroa, M.D. "I am extremely grateful to our faculty for their leadership in our research mission, as these are the individuals who are the principal investigators of these important grants."
