New NIH Approach to Grant Funding Aimed at Optimizing Stewardship of Taxpayer Dollars
May 11, 2017 11:30 AM
NIH is planning to limit the number of awards and dollars any one researcher can receive. This will probably only affect the top 6% of researchers.
This initiative aims to take advantage of new and powerful ways to assess the effectiveness of NIH research investments to be sure that the funds we are given are producing the best results from our remarkable scientific workforce. We would pursue this strategy regardless of the level of budget support.
