Strong National Research Funding
IU School of Medicine scientists and physicians were awarded more than $217 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2021. It was the second year in a row the school surpassed $200 million.
As the research program at IU School of Medicine grows, so do the benefits to Indiana and beyond. According to a report by United for Medical Research, every $1 million in NIH funding awarded to Indiana researchers created 13 jobs and $2.7 million in economic activity in 2020. Based on that data, IU School of Medicine’s 2021 NIH funding is responsible for more than 3,823 jobs—with 2,817 of those here in Indiana.
An emphasis on team science and prioritization by leadership have allowed IU School of Medicine faculty to grow their expertise in strategic areas of research to maximize the school’s impact on both medical science and public health.
