US Academic Medical Centers Capital Projects
- In this research, our focus was first aimed at identifying top-ten academic medical centers (AMC's) that are continually-funded by the U.S. National Institute of Health (NIH) — the biggest national research funding organization.
- Given that the NIH is the primary source of funding for almost all U.S-based AMC's, it is an accurate representation of:
- (i) the overall extent and the impact of research,
- (ii) the funding growth rate (over last five years), and
- (iii) the allocation of research budget amongst the following domains: research and development, development of research centers, construction, entirely on research projects, and training the research staff.
- In our research, we also came across varying sources of AMC funding (both private and state) for clinical and translational research projects. This was kept out of the three-hour scope of this research project. If the client wants this information, it can be provided in subsequent requests.
- Using the NIH-RePORT platform we obtained statistics pertaining to the NIH funding between 2015-2020, the number of research projects awarded (or funded), funding allocations, and key projects that received maximum funding in 2020.
- The following information for respective AMC's has been outlined in the attached google spreadsheet.
- Names of U.S. Academic Medical Centers (AMC's)
- Size of the AMC (in square feet)
- City, State
- Number of NIH funded Awards/Projects (2020)
- The total NIH funding (2020)
- NIH funding allocation in 2020 (Amount & Number of Funded Awards): (i) Other Research-Related, (ii) Research & Development Contracts, (iii) Research Centers, (iv) Research Project Grants, (v) Individual Training Grants, and (vi) Institutional Training Grants.
