UCSF draws fame for its four Nobel laureates, its groundbreaking life sciences research, and its world-class medical care. Its schools of dentistry, medicine, nursing, and pharmacy as well as the UCSF Graduate Division are consistently ranked among the top in the nation. Patients come from all over the region to UCSF Medical Center and UCSF Children’s Hospital, which both consistently rank among the nation’s top 10 hospitals, according to US News & World Report.
UCSF is one of the single most prominent research and development institutions in the US and draws more money from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) than any public institution: $463 million in fiscal year 2009. UCSF’s Clinical and Translational Science Institute was established in 2006, with a $100 million grant from the NIH and a mandate to find a way to speed scientific discoveries from the lab to patients. UCSF is also one of the leading institutional recipients of science-based stimulus funds under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.
