For a fourth consecutive year, rankings of 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 $7.7 million in NIH research funding in 2017, 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 department’s continued strength and commitment to excellence, attributing this success to "the tireless work of department faculty and staff."
