The UC Davis School of Medicine rose to 37th place among 134 medical schools in the U.S. in an annual ranking of research funding from the National Institutes of Health in 2010, school officials reported Monday. That’s 11 places higher than 2009 and 25 spots better than in 2001, when UC Davis ranked 62nd nationwide. UC Davis got almost $119 million in total research funding from NIH in 2010. This compares to just over $46 million in 2001. NIH funding represents 62 percent of the school’s total outside funding, which reached $190.4 million in fiscal 2009-2010.
