On Monday, Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News (GEN) published a list of the Top 50 NIH-funded U.S. universities in fiscal year October 1st – September 30th. Geographically, California leads the list of most Federal research monies going to schools in the state. The list, set forth below, shows that private universities represent 22 of the 50 universities and garner about 24% of the funding (disproportionately, with Johns Hopkins University, Duke, Yale, Stanford, Washington and the Universities of Pittsburgh and Pennsylvania getting more thanm 50% of the total of almost $19 billion in NIH funding).
The top 50 get about 80% of the total awarded, representing "almost 50,000 competitive grants given to more than 2,500 universities, medical schools and other research institutions" at home and abroad according to GEN. The leader, Johns Hopkins, received almost one thousand awards in 2014, while the majority of the rest of the schools received between 300-500 awards.
