  1. […] March 9, 2009 at 8:49 am · Filed under NIH Advice, Research News Update: Congratulations – we have a budget for FY09. […]

  2. How fucking deranged is it that the fucking Institute of Woo gets nearly as much as the Institute of Nursing Research??

    Looks like a flat budget again..more or less.

    Yes, D – about a 3% increase. Inexplicably, the Washington Post lumps the NIH among the winners in this budget:

    The bill represents a bonanza for federal agencies that felt a budget squeeze for much of Bush’s two terms. Mass transit, public housing, the National Institutes of Health, Head Start and the Pell grant program are all among the Democratic priorities that would see new federal money flow into their coffers. The Food and Drug Administration would receive nearly $335 million more than it did in fiscal 2008. The supplemental nutrition program for women, infants and children, known as WIC, would grow by $1.2 billion, a 21 percent jump from the $5.7 billion appropriated last year.

    The Post has a graphic showing that health-labor-education lumped together showed the second lowest budget growth (5%), with only interior-environment lower (4%). Ah yes, the priorities of the prior administration.

    FY 2009 was screwed up long ago. Personally, I’m holding my breath to see what happens with FY 2010. This will be the first real opportunity for “change we can believe in”… or not…

    you know that stuff those wacky self-important minnesotan bloggers do, poll crashing. wouldn’t it be totally excellent to organize some nccam crashing? Flood them with so much actual science that a couple or two actually had to be funded?

    … a monkey can dream….

    The “official” NIH FY09 Fiscal Policy is now up. Such that it is.
