EM Research Hits #2 in NIH Funding

Blue Ridge Rankings

The Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research published their 2014 rankings of NIH funding awards for U.S. medical schools.

OHSU Emergency Medicine research funding reached the number two spot in the nation for the 2014 grant year – up two positions from a fourth place ranking last year. In addition to the overall achievement, five OHSU EM faculty members found themselves in the top 50 NIH funded principal investigators for Emergency Medicine research:

Overall, OHSU was ranked 23rd in 2014, which was even with last year, but up from 26th in 2012.

The data that Blue Ridge uses for determining these rankings is obtained from the Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT) from the National Institutes of Health.

The NIH itself does not rank the department strengths of the institutions it funds, so independent assessments like Blue Ridge provide a useful - though not definitive - measurement of how the school fits into the nation's overall biomedical research picture.
