Every day, thousands of University of Michigan biomedical researchers engage in discovery. And our success breeds success:
Our Medical School is eighth in the nation in terms of National Institutes of Health funding - $366 million in Fiscal Year 2009 alone.
Another $69 million was won in competition with other top-notch researchers at universities around the country.
We are currently involved in more than 400 clinical research trials - from new cancer medications to preventive health care - in which our patients and our community play a vital role.
New ideas from our laboratories and clinics are translated into new companies, new products and new ways of delivering health care.
Our University has just had the largest research expansion in more than 60 years: the North Campus Research Complex is our newest hub for academic and private-sector research with 30 buildings in 2 million square feet of sophisticated research space.
Who knows what the future will bring? We have an idea that it's something good for the entire world.
