Strong National Research Funding
IU School of Medicine scientists and physicians were awarded more than $217 million in research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in 2021. It was the second year in a row the school surpassed $200 million.
As the research program at IU School of Medicine grows, so do the benefits to Indiana and beyond. According to a report by United for Medical Research, every $1 million in NIH funding awarded to Indiana researchers created 13 jobs and $2.7 million in economic activity in 2020. Based on that data, IU School of Medicine’s 2021 NIH funding is responsible for more than 3,823 jobs—with 2,817 of those here in Indiana.
