The National Institutes of Health (NIH) invests nearly $37.3 billion annually in medical research. More than 80% of the funding is awarded through nearly 50,000 competitive grants to more than 300,000 researchers at more than 2500 universities, medical schools, and other research institutions in every U.S. state and around the world.
Below is a list of 50 universities (including medical schools), research institutions, and teaching hospitals ranked by how much in NIH funding they have received during the current 2018 federal fiscal year, through May 29. FY 2018 ends on September 30. Also included for each NIH grant recipient is the number of grant awards funded in FY 2018, which was not a factor in the ranking.
