According to the nationwide 2018 NIH rankings of Departments of Pediatrics receiving NIH funding, the Department has improved its standing.
As a whole the Department was up $2 million over the previous year in NIH funding, and our ranking nationwide went from #27 to #24. More details can be found here.
This is nice progress, and a testament to the robust opportunities to be gained here at Iowa. As the Department dedicates more resources to research recruitment over the next couple years, it is anticipated that this progress will continue. Well done!
