At $1.78b, Boston again tops in funding from NIH

CHICAGO — Boston again drew the most National Institutes of Health funding of any city in the nation in 2012, receiving total grants of $1.78 billion. The city’s hospitals, universities, and research institutions attracted 3,700 awards from the NIH last year, about 72 percent of NIH funding in Massachusetts and 8 percent of the agency’s funding nationally.

It was the 18th consecutive year that Boston topped the nation in NIH funding. The results were disclosed Tuesday by Boston officials attending the Biotechnology Industry Organization convention here.
