Top NIH Grants for 2007

  • As year end approaches, we thought our website visitors would be interested in seeing which institutions, scientists, and projects received the largest NIH grants in 2007. Below, please find two listings. The first shows the top 25 grant receiving institutions based on the total value of all NIH grants awarded in 2007. The second covers the top 20 NIH-funded principal investigators affiliated with one of those institutes and their respective projects at those institutes.

    Also, on behalf of the entire editorial and production teams at Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News, we wish you a happy (and healthy) holiday season.
