It's the end of the year, so time to count the number of pennies the NIH has doled out in the last 12 months. Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology News linkurl:published a list;http://www.genengnews.com/news/bnitem.aspx?name=28380062 of the top 20 PIs of the year, and Barton F. Haynes at Duke University ($46,482,429) sits at the top of that pyramid. The best-funded institutions were Johns Hopkins University ($566,516,255) and the University of Pennsylvania ($434,874,723). The list is somewhat deceiving, since Harvard doesn't make the top 25 because its independent hospitals are not included in the institution's total. It deserves to be there: In 2004, Harvard and its five domestic hospitals linkurl:brought in a total;http://www.the-scientist.com/article/display/24101/ of $852 million in extramural awards. The linkurl:source;http://www.nihsales.com/ of the 2007 information is NIH Sales, which analyzes the agency's funding.
