NIH Funding Tops Milestone
The Medical Center attracted more funds from the National Institutes of Health
in 2001 than ever before, topping the $100 million milestone for the first time.
That funding helps support researchers and graduate students, and it represents
one of the biggest infusions of cash into the Rochester economy each year.
"These dollars not only support the livelihood of thousands of residents
of the Rochester area, but they also mark an important step in the long effort
to improve human health by preventing or treating disease more effectively,"
said Medical Center CEO Jay Stein.
Many departments received especially large increases in 2001, including the
psychiatry department's 98 percent increase and a 50 percent increase to surgery.
