Published on 10 June 2021
University of Health Sciences and Pharmacy in St. Louis was ranked No. 5 on the St. Louis Business Journal’s recently released list of the region’s largest National Institutes of Health (NIH) award recipients for 2020.
The list highlights the top 24 NIH award recipients in St. Louis ranked by NIH award volume. The University placed fifth on the list with six NIH awards during 2020, totaling more than $1.9 million.
The ranking marks the second, consecutive time the University has placed in the top five on the list amongst other prominent research institutions such as Washington University in St. Louis and Saint Louis University.
“We are once again thrilled to have made the list of St. Louis’ largest NIH award recipients,” said Tom Burris, Ph.D., FAAAS, FAHA, Alumni Chair in Pharmaceutical Education and vice president for research at UHSP. “This ranking is further proof that our efforts to establish the University as a significant player in the field of research and drug discovery are paying off.”
In recent years, extramural funding at the University has increased rapidly. Currently, the University receives annual funding through NIH and other granting agencies such as the U.S. Department of Defense, the U.S Food and Drug administration and the World Health Organization.
