The Blue Ridge Institute for Medical Research has released the rankings of funding from the National Institutes of Health (NIH) for U.S. medical schools in 2021, and Duke University has been ranked #9 for NIH funding among Otolaryngology departments. This new ranking is an increase from the department's #18 status in 2020.
