UTHSC has record year, scores $133M in research grants and contracts


In recent years, the University of Memphis has received acclaim for its research efforts, with the school being named a top-tier research university by the Carnegie Classifications of Institutions of Higher Education in December 2021. The U of M, however, isn’t the only local organization doing major exploration and investigation. According to MBJ research, the University of Tennessee Health Science Center (UTHSC) is the second-largest research institution in the Memphis area, ahead of U of M and behind St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. And UTHSC has just had another record year. A press release shows that UTHSC scored $132.9 million in grant and contract awards in FY 2022, about a $6.3 million increase from the $126.7 million it earned in FY 2021. It’s the sixth straight year UTHSC has seen growth in grant and contract awards, and represents a 56% jump from the $85 million it earned in FY 2017.
