BRIMR Rankings of NIH Funding in 2008
as compiled by Robert Roskoski Jr.
All data are derived from NIH year-end composite data for the federal fiscal year ending 30 September 2008, as released on the NIH Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tool (RePORT).
The information on Medical Schools was obtained from the Medical Schools only NIH file. For reasons that are unclear, this file does not contain Mayo Clinic Medical School data, and the overall award to Mayo was obtained from the All Organizations file. The All Organizations file was used to calculate the rankings for all Institutions, Cities, States, Countries, Principal Investigators, and other Health Sciences Schools.

There is no form of prose more difficult to understand and more tedious to read than the average scientific paper.
The unified discipline of biological science has emerged because it is expressed in a single universal language: the language of chemistry. It is an international language, a language without dialects, a language for all of time, and a language that explains where we came from, what we are, and where the physical world will allow us to go.
