The UCLA School of Nursing received $5.7 million in grants from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) - placing the school 7th in total dollars received for research in 2012.

The School has climbed from 13 to 7 for total funding received from the NIH over the past four years. Last year the school entered the Top 10 at 10.

"This continued growth in research dollars reflects the amazing work that is being accomplished by our researchers," said Courtney H. Lyder, dean of the UCLA School of Nursing. "From bench to bedside, we are working on advancing health.

"Few schools of nursing have such robust faculty prepared in the biological sciences," added Lyder.  "And few are able to combine behavioral sciences with the biological sciences to conduct biobehavioral research the way we can.  By doing so, we are able to tackle many meaningful questions, including how biology influences human behavior."

NIH funded research at the school includes:

  • AIDS Immunity by Gene Therapy
  • Early Detection of Pressure Ulcers in Nursing Home Residents
