For a third consecutive year, rankings of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) biomedical research funding put UCSF in first place for urology funding. According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research, which analyzes these statistics, UCSF Department of Urology investigators received a total of $7.1 million in NIH research funding in 2016, more than any other institution for research in this discipline.
The UCSF Department of Urology first reached the number-one position in 2014. Department Chair Peter R. Carroll, MD, MPH, again sees this year’s ranking as evidence of the continued strength and commitment to excellence of the UCSF faculty and staff.
Carroll attributes an “extremely talented and hard-working group of clinical researchers and basic scientists” for the department’s continued success toward achievements that promote enhancements in prevention, diagnosis and therapies.
