May 23 — UH College of Pharmacy has climbed to 23rd in research funding from all sources and 25th in grants from the National Institutes of Health and other federal sources in Fiscal Year 2018 among peer institutions across the nation, according to data released this month by the American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy (AACP).

According to the AACP data, UHCOP recorded $10.87 million in research funding from all sources, which includes $9.02 million in research funding from NIH and other federal sources.

"This is an outstanding achievement by our highly productive faculty members who are advancing the college forward while seeking innovative solutions and therapies to many life-threatening and debilitating illnesses and other challenges to the wellbeing of our communities and patients across the state, the U.S. and the world," said UHCOP Dean F.
