Research Experience

The integrated faculty has consistently been well funded by the NIH, the VA, and industry. To provide a snapshot of current funding held by faculty with primary appointments within the Division of Adult Nephrology, in fiscal year 2020, to date, the Division has received $600,000 direct costs in VA Merit Award funding (4 grants), and $5.1 million direct costs in NIH and industry funding.  These amounts reflect direct costs only, and represent the present year of funding only. Many prior trainees from our Division have gone on to successful academic careers, many of these are among the current T32 faculty, and several others who have left UCSD are leading academic divisions of nephrology at other institutions across the US.
