This is why Ron Davis is such an asset - he has some of the best minds and some of the best labs in the country around him.

  • Columbia (Ian Lipkin) - #11
  • Univ of Alabama at Birmingham (Jarred Younger) - 25th



The top medical school for research is Harvard University in Boston, Massachusetts, according to US News & World Report's latest rankings of best medical schools for research.

Taking the number 2 spot for research is Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore, Maryland, and tied for third are New York University (Langone) in New York City and Stanford University in California.

Isn't this the same Stanford that the NIH declined to fund, because they were second-rate or some such thing?

That was one of weirdest things I ever heard - that someone or some people review panel for the NIH Research Center grants stated that Ron Davis did have good institutional support. That apparently sent Davis AND Stanford into orbit.

In the end that said more about that idiotic reviewer than Stanford :)
