Vanderbilt researchers are at the forefront of posing innovative solutions to some of the most challenging questions and obstacles facing us today.

However, to find these solutions, researchers at Vanderbilt University Medical Center (VUMC) and Vanderbilt University (VU) largely rely on the generous support of federal grants and contracts, most of which are awarded through a competitive process. In fiscal year 2015, the combined value of federal grants and contracts for research and related activities totaled $506 million across VU and VUMC. These funds come from a multitude of federal agencies, but primarily the National Institutes of Health, the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, the Department of Education, and the Department of Energy. Such support allows VUMC to serve as a leader in research related to personalized medicine, biomedical informatics, cancer care, vaccine safety and development, surgery and engineering, medical imaging and many other areas.
