The Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research just released the 2016 NIH funding numbers, and our department once again tops the list as the #1 funded pathology department! This continues a remarkable streak in which we have been the #1 funded pathology department for 9 of the last 10 years! Four of the top 25 most highly funded pathology investigators are from Hopkins (congratulations Drs. Nachman, S. Eshleman, TC Wu and D. Chan!). Most importantly, the broad and deep science in our department has real impact - it advances knowledge and helps fight human suffering.
