PROGRESS Growth and momentum marked this year at Virginia Commonwealth University and nowhere has it been more evident than on the MCV campus. The 12 million dollar Robert Blackwell Smith Jr. Pharmacy Pharmacology Building was dedicated, a new parking deck was opened, additions were completed to the Supply and Distribution Building and the Massey Cancer Center, and the renovation of North Hospital should be completed by next fall. VCU is not only upgrading its patient care and teaching facilities but also its reputation in research and development. The National Science Founda- tion ranked VCU 71 st in the nation in federally funded research and 46th in medical science research. This amounted to more than 30 million dollars in grant support last year. The strength of VCU and the School of Basic Sciences has been recog- nized by our designation as the lead institution in biotechnology for the Center for Innovative Technology. The Clinical Research Center for Periodontal Disease is one of only three such centers in the United States. Also, VCU was selected as one of only three universities nationwide to implement an educational program to improve management skills of nurses with top executive potential. Medical researchers on the MCV campus have made important contributions to a variety of health problems ranging from eradicating childhood cancers to rehabilitating the severely head injured. All of these accomplishments have been made in a period of federal funding cutbacks and concern about rising health care costs. As the state and national economy recovers, we should now expect more realistic support for higher education, more specifically for our university. The health care industry is undergoing alteration as it never has before, and a number of issues must be addressed if we are to continue as a center of excellence. It is abundantly clear that we must be ready to adapt to some changes and equally as clear that, by adapting, we must still maintain the quality of our teaching and service. With the new vice president for health sciences and two new deans, the administrative structure of the MCV campus will be in place; and we will be ready to develop realistic plans for the future — plans which will enable you, as health care professionals, to meet the medical challenges of tomorrow. I Edmund F. Ackell, D.M.D., M.D. President
