Wednesday, January 13, 2010 – NIH Recovery Act Investment Reports released.


The NIH has released a collection of Recovery Act Investment Reports highlighting investments in biomedical research topics all made possible by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA). Awarded 10 billion dollars through ARRA, the NIH was given an unprecedented opportunity to provide jobs and invest in cutting edge science with the goal of improving the nation's health! These 166 reports are designed to describe, in plain language, the needs for research on specific diseases or other health-related topics and how ARRA-funded projects are addressing these needs. While these investment reports describe work being supported through approximately 2000 ARRA grants, this is only a subset of the more than 12,000 grants that have been awarded through ARRA and can be accessed at https://report.nih.gov/recovery/arragrants.cfm.

Recovery Act Investment Reports were developed by the NIH Institutes and Centers and several other NIH Offices, including the Office of the Director, which are involved in awarding ARRA grants to scientific researchers. The reports are compiled, maintained, and posted by the NIH Office of Science Policy. https://report.nih.gov/recovery/investmentreports
