“It is a testament to our talented faculty and scientists that the school’s funding is so highly ranked,” said David D. Allen, the school’s dean. “I am honored to work with these individuals who are dedicated to research excellence.”

The University of Mississippi is the only Southeastern Conference school in the top 10 rankings.
