Pharmacy research ranks 13th nationally
The American Association of Colleges of Pharmacy released the 2008 national rankings for National Institutes of Health funding for pharmacy schools. Out of 112 schools of pharmacy, NDSU’s pharmacy program was ranked 13th in the United States for the percent of doctoral faculty with National Institutes of Health funding. NDSU has 42 percent of full-time equivalent doctoral pharmacy faculty receiving funding from the National Institutes of Health.
NDSU's percentage of pharmaceutical sciences faculty with competitive National Institutes of Health funding exceeded many other prestigious research universities including the University of Maryland, University of Illinois at Chicago, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, The Ohio State University, University of Minnesota, University of Iowa and the University of Florida.
NDSU ranked 38th nationally for total National Institutes of Health grant dollars awarded per full-time equivalent faculty, just behind the University of Minnesota (34th) and the University of Iowa (35th).
“This is a great acknowledgement of the quality and competitiveness of our research within the Department of Pharmaceutical Sciences and within our college,” said Charles Peterson, dean of the College of Pharmacy, Nursing, and Allied Sciences. “We have a great group of faculty, working very hard, and producing great results. They are competing successfully with the best in the nation.”
NDSU is one of 112 schools of pharmacy nationally accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education.
