For the 32nd consecutive year, the UCSF School of Pharmacy received more research funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) than any other pharmacy school in the United States.
Total grants and contracts awarded to School of Pharmacy researchers during the NIH fiscal year 2011 (running from October 1, 2010 to September 31, 2011) totaled $29.1 million, according to Michael Nordberg, MPA/HSA, associate dean of administration and finance.

Such preeminence in securing highly competitive U.S. federal research funds reflects the School’s strengths in advancing long-standing national technology centers in mass spectrometry and biocomputing, as well as on-going major research projects within the School’s three departments, including areas such as:
- Women and HIV, Department of Clinical Pharmacy.
- Pharmacogenomics of membrane transporters, Department of Bioengineering and Therapeutic Sciences.
- Key enzymes in apoptosis and inflammation, Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry.
