Today the Blue Ridge Institute released the 2019 NIH rankings and our Medical School has moved to 27, up from 30 last year (and 33 the year before).
For the first time in many years, our momentum is growing, our vision is clear, and our success is energizing. We are grateful for the support of President Gabel and our Board of Regents, as well as the strong partnership we have with the State of Minnesota in advancing our mission.
Our faculty is the reason for this shift and growth. We have what it takes to be preeminent, to be national leaders in several areas. We are continually improving our ability to support academic and clinical work, to engage our students in research, and to have a true impact on the health challenges facing Minnesota.
This is the right team, at the right time, moving with full force in the right direction. With the continued support of our partners and leaders, we will deliver.
Thank you for everything you do every day to make our Medical School the best it can be.
