California, King of Grants


With sheer size alone, it’s no surprise that California tops the list as the highest-funded state by NIH grants. The state has nearly $2.7 billion from the institutes, and a good chunk of that money goes toward integrated biology. GT culled through the database (current as of August 2) to find California researchers who had NIH grants obviously related to this field. In order to keep the list manageable, we weeded out grants worth less than $400,000. This list is not exhaustive.
