CoM Research Annual Report 2016
The 2016 Research Annual Report of the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine charts not only our outstanding progress toward the aspirational goals of the College’s strategic plan, but also clearly establishes the abilities of our faculty as research leaders at UC, nationally and internationally. The accomplishments of our faculty reflect our commitment, to career success of our investigators, investments in the renewal of our research commitment and the deployment of new knowledge and therapies that improve the lives of patients locally and globally. The number of new research grants awarded has returned to FY2013 levels, reversing recent declines. Our faculty have risen to the challenges presented by the research funding environment with success rates that exceed the national average. These efforts have increased the new grants awarded during each of the last three years, from $67 million in 2014 to $159 million in 2016. This 137 percent increase is exemplary in an era of tight federal budgets. While we are on track to continue this growth during FY2017, we recognize that sustainability will require new investments in research both from the College, as well as the university.
