Science is not cold and unfeeling. In scientific investigation one becomes emotionally contained in his problem. Head, heart and hand – the three H’s of experimentation – all are involved in creativity in the medical sciences, and the combination enables us to recognize a solvable problem. Charles B. Huggins

Genius is one percent inspiration and ninety-nine percent perspiration. Thomas Alva Edison 
Attitudes rather than knowledge are conveyed by the distinguished teacher.  Hans A. Krebs

The information contained in the Award files for 2009 was obtained from the Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT) from the National Institutes of Health at http://report.nih.gov/award/trends/AggregateData.cfm. The information on Medical Schools was obtained from the Medical Schools only file. For reasons that are unclear, this file does not contain Mayo Clinic Medical School data, and the overall award to Mayo was obtained from the All Organizations file. The All Organizations file was used to calculate the rankings for all Institutions, Cities, States,  Countries, Principal Investigators, and other Health Sciences Schools. Please report any discrepancies between the Blue Ridge Institute files and the NIH files to Webmaster@brimr.org. The Award Data correspond to the US Government fiscal year. Awards for 2009 correspond to those granted from 1 October 2008-30 September 2009. There is considerable variation on how universities credit awards and how the NIH deals with these variations.
