National Institutes of Health: Research Priority Setting, and Funding Allocations across Selected Diseases and Conditions
Linda T. Kohn (au)
The Nat. Institutes of Health (NIH) is the nation's leader in sponsoring and conducting biomedical research. In FY 2012, NIH had a budget of almost $31 billion, over 80% of which was used to fund extramural research that supports scientists and research personnel working at universities, medical schools, and other research institutions. Twenty-four of NIH's 27 individual institutes and centers (ICs) that support extramural research are focused on particular diseases, conditions, or research areas, and these ICs have their own appropriations. Decisions about which projects are funded are made by these individual ICs. This report examined (1) how research priorities are set at NIH, and (2) NIH allocations of research funding across selected diseases and conditions for five ICs: Nat. Cancer Institute; Nat. Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute; Nat. Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases; Nat. Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases; and Nat. Institute of General Medical Sciences. Tables. This is a print on demand report.
