According to the Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research (, with just under $11,000,000 in NIH research funding, the Department of Molecular & Cellular Biochemistry is ranked 19th among biochemistry departments in medical schools in the United States.

We are ranked 8th in the nation among medical schools at public universities. This ranking puts us ahead of biochemistry departments at schools such as the University of Pennsylvania, UCLA, and Duke University, and not far behind the University of Utah and Stanford University. As our faculty, research staff, postdocs, and graduate students continue to push their research in new and exciting directions we hope to maintain, if not increase, our ranking in the future.
