NIH Funding Data Recap by FASEB

When H.R. 1 imposed a $1.6B-cut in the NIH budget, FASEB quickly sent out a press release and analysis of NIH funding trends. Among the findings highlighted in their statement:

  • Over the past 6 years, the number of research project grants funded by NIH has declined in almost every year, and we now fund 2,000 fewer grants than in FY2004
  • NIH made 9,455 competing (new and renewed) awards in FY2010, 1,000 fewer than in FY2003
  • Success rates have fallen more than 10 percentage points in the past decade
  • Success rates for new (type 1) applications have fallen for 3 straight years and are now at 17%
