Physiology Ranked in Top 10
Published February 2007
A new study of faculty productivity showed that UC's systems biology and physiology program ranked No. 6 in the nation.
The study, the Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index, rates faculty members' scholarly output at nearly 7,300 doctoral programs around the country using objective, unbiased data, such as papers published and grant dollars received, rather than "reputation" rankings.
UC's systems biology and physiology program comprises about 70 faculty members.
"The quality of the faculty who teach in this and many other programs at UC means that students who choose our university will get a world-class education, and
Ohio will continue to produce world-class scientific knowledge," says program director Nelson Horseman, PhD.
The other top 10 programs were at John Hopkins, Case Western Reserve, Vanderbilt, Cornell, Pittsburgh, Yale, Columbia, New York University and the University of Washington.
The Faculty Scholarly Productivity Index is produced by Academic Analytics, a for-profit company.
