By todd

“It’s an exciting time to be at UAMS,” Dean E. Albert Reece, M.D., Ph.D., M.B.A., commented.

Physicians and scientists at UAMS study a wide variety of health problems. In the College of Medicine, the Donald W. Reynolds Department of Geriatrics ranks in the top fourth for NIH funding, while the Departments of Pharmacology and Toxicology, Psychiatry, Medicine, and Biochemistry all moved up.

UAMS is the principal institution for health sciences research in Arkansas. Its affiliate, Arkansas Children’s Hospital, received $3 million in NIH funding in FY 2002. The University of Arkansas, Fayetteville, received $4.9 million in NIH funding during the same period.
