The $787 billion stimulus package that President Obama signed into law yesterday provides $21.5 billion in science and research spending. What, if anything, does this mean for you?

with Pam Ahlberg

The NIH is expected to receive $10 billion, including $8.5 billion for research and $1.5 billion for university research facilities. The NSF will receive $3 billion, including $2.5 billion for research, $400 million for infrastructure and $100 million for education. The DOE will receive $2 billion for scientific research, and NASA will be allotted $1 billion, including $400 million for climate change research.

Will any of this have an impact on your lab or research goals? If so, how so?

Kind regards,
