UIC College of Pharmacy moves up to #7 in total research funding
The college had a record year of $24.5 million in grants awarded
The University of Illinois Chicago College of Pharmacy has moved up two spots to #7 in the national rankings for total research funding, according to a June 2022 report released by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP). For this year’s ranking, a total of 111 schools of pharmacy in the US reported extramural research funding.
For the past federal fiscal year (October 1, 2020 - September 30, 2021), the college received a record $24.5 million total, $15.3 million of which were from NIH grants. This represents a 5% increase from the previous year’s total ($23.3 million), at a time when overall national funding remained flat.
"These rankings are important because they serve as a metric for the quality of the research being done here,” says Dean Glen Schumock. "The funding agencies only support research that they believe will have major scientific impact."
