National Institutes of Health (NIH) Research Funding

The president recently released his proposed budget for the fiscal year 2016. If this initiative is enacted by Congress, it could add nearly $1 billion for the NIH, supporting 650 new grants, and would further increase funding. Congress is still in the process of making changes to this proposal, including budget levels at the NIH. Children’s relies heavily on grants and funding from the NIH to promote research that helps us better care for our patients.
