Year in review: Check out IU School of Medicine’s top stories of 2021

December 16, 2021

While medicine is complex, a healer’s job is easy to describe. Healers preserve, restore and advance better health.

In 2021, that mission guided the work of Indiana University School of Medicine, building upon the school’s commitment to doing research that transforms patient care.

For the fifth consecutive year, the school set a record for grant support from the National Institutes of Health, garnering more than $213 million in NIH grants.

In this Spirit of Medicine blog post, read about some of the most significant accomplishments of the past year in: 

  • Cancer research advances
  • Alzheimer’s disease prevention and treatment
  • Innovation in medical education
  • Eliminating health care disparities and promoting inclusion
  • Celebrating the spirit of medicine

As always, IU School of Medicine will keep moving forward in its mission—preparing healers, conducting innovative medical research and transforming health for patients in Indiana and beyond. That has defined IU School of Medicine for a century—and will continue in 2022.
