IU School of Medicine researchers who received federal grants in 2021 were recognized during a special event on Thursday, April 21 at the VanNuys Medical Science Building atrium. This was the first in-person event for IU School of Medicine’s research affairs since the COVID-19 pandemic started more than two years ago.

During the course of the 2021 calendar year, 138 new federal grants were awarded to IU School of Medicine researchers from organizations such as the National Institutes of Health (NIH), the United States Department of Defense, and the United States Department of Veterans Affairs. Also in 2021, 34 researchers received federal funding for their work at IU School of Medicine for the first time. Tatiana Foroud, PhD, executive associate dean for research affairs at IU School of Medicine, congratulated the grant recipients during the event.

“Our newest grant recipients come from a variety of specialties,” said Foroud, who is also the chair of the Department of Medical and Molecular Genetics. “We are proud to recognize their efforts and look forward to seeing the results of their studies.”

There were 786 unique principal investigators with active grants at IU School of Medicine in 2021.
