The National Institutes of Health have released their 2012 grant numbers, and have shown a noted increase in award dollars compared to 2011 numbers. From NIH:
“Looking back on these data, the first thought that comes to my mind is, “We made it.” Despite a flat budget and complex fiscal times, we maintained last year’s success rate and slightly increased the amount of award dollars that went to research project grants. We continue to strive to maintain a diverse portfolio of biomedical research, and keep this important work moving along quickly.”
