Indiana University School of Medicine is the largest medical school in the United States. Located on the school’s downtown Indianapolis campus, the Medical Neuroscience Graduate Program at Stark Neurosciences Research Institute is part of one of the most nationally recognized and diverse research institutions in the country.
Physicians and scientists at IU School of Medicine were awarded more than $189 million in research grants in the 2019 fiscal year from the National Institutes of Health to study the underlying causes of disease, the development of new therapeutics, and how to improve the delivery of care. A substantial part of that funding—$84.2 million—was awarded to investigators within Stark Neurosciences Research Institute, including four of the largest grants at the school dedicated to Alzheimer's disease research.
