CoM Research Annual Report 2016
We are honored to present this first annual report on the research mission of the College. The data, publications and stories emphasize the achievements and successes of all of our research faculty in the 24 departments at the College. In this era of limited research funding, faculty have risen to the challenge by increasing our new grant holdings consistently through the last three years from $62 million in 2013 to $87 million in 2015. We have also increased the number of new grants from 141 to 171, at a success rate much higher than the national average at 26 percent, up from 22 percent.
In this report, you will discover the vast array of research ongoing in the College, and the investigators that each department chose to be recognized for their research achievements. Our publications highlight the basic discoveries, translational science, clinical trials and outcomes research that are hallmarks of a great college of medicine.
