UC Davis #18 in Life Sciences in the World Thanks to Our Research

People like to make rankings of things. According to the latest survey by Times Higher Education of the world’s leading universities, UC Davis is number #44 by reputation, but #38 in World University Raking 2011-2012. If we look at the ranking for Life Sciences, UC Davis is #18. One below Wageningen University in the Netherlands (also a university focussed on agricultural research) and one higher than the University of Michigan. The strength lies in research and teaching, but international outlook and industry income is a bit lagging. With the recent effort by Chancellor Katehi in forging partnerships with the new powerhouse in South America, Brazil as part of the 2020 initiative, besides trying to get $1B in fundraising, these weaknesses are soon to be turned around in strengths.
