There is no form of prose more difficult to understand and more tedious to read than the average scientific paper. Francis Crick
There’s nothing remarkable about it. All one has to do is hit the right keys at the right time and the instrument plays itself. – Johann Sebastian Bach commentary on the piano
There are three kinds of lies: lies, damned lies, and statistics.a saying popularised by Mark Twain

    The information contained in the Award files was obtained from the Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT) from the National Institutes of Health. For reasons that are unclear, the Mayo Clinic is not designated as a School of Medicine and its awards are not attributed to specific departments. However, BRIMR has included the Mayo Clinic in the Medical School rankings from data included in the All Organizations file. This file was also used to calculate the rankings for all Institutions, Cities, 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 and R&D contracts for 2013 correspond to those granted from 1 October 2012-30 September 2013. 

     It is difficult, if not impossible, to summarize accurately department, medical school, and university allocations in brief tables. Bona fide medical school faculty may have their grants credited to hospitals thereby leading to an underestimate of medical school funding. Harvard Medical School, for example, has 17 teaching hospitals. These include Brigham and Women's ($313 million in 2013), Dana-Farber ($115 million), and Massachusetts General Hospital ($323 million). Including these awards would increase the rank of Harvard Medical School. In contrast, some medical schools are credited  with grants to non-traditional medical school departments including biology, chemistry, psychology, and physics.

     There are additional considerations. The NIH combines diagnostic and therapeutic radiology (Radiation-Diagnostic/Oncology) into a single category, whereas these entities may represent separate departments. BRIMR catalogues these under Radiology. Moreover, a combined department (e.g., Department of Physiology and Pharmacology) will appear in only one category and skew the rankings for that department. The NIH files specify a single Principal Investigator (PI) so that a grant to multiple PI's and co-PIs cannot be credited to multiple departments. Click here to go to an NIH site for additional information. 

     The ≈ $11 billion awarded to medical schools accounts for nearly half of the $23 billion awarded in extramural NIH funding. However, data for recent R & D contracts, which historically account for about 10% of NIH extramural funding, does not attribute awards to specific departments nor to specific Medical Schools. These awards are not included in our Medical School reports from 2010-2013. We have posted all R&D contracts from 2013 as a stand alone file independent of any Medical School Award. Of the ≈ $2 billion in R and D contracts, generally less than $200 million has been awarded to Schools of Medicine.
