Research Funding in Biochemistry Earns Top 10 Ranking

COLUMBIA, MO -- The University of Missouri-Columbia's Department of Biochemistry ranks No. 6 in research grants among biochemistry departments at the nation's public medical schools, according to a recent tabulation by the Association of American Medical Colleges in Washington, D.C.

The AAMC survey reported that researchers in the MU department utilized more than $6.7 million in 2003, the most recent year for which figures are available. This was more than twice the national average for public medical school departments of biochemistry.

"Research funding to our department has doubled in the last five years," said Dr. Gerald Hazelbauer, an MU professor and chair of biochemistry. "This is the result of the competitiveness and stature of a creative faculty at the cutting edge of research in the life sciences."

The Association of American Medical Colleges is a nonprofit association representing all 125 accredited U.S. and 17 accredited Canadian medical schools.
