NIH Information

The National Institutes of Health received far more money than the NSF from the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.  Again, it's not entirely clear where that money will go.

The NIH will likely fund projects that are already in house, but previously were not supported because resources were unavailable.  At the same time, purport to prioritize an investment in education, and training teachers.  This sounds like a good goal for the "reinvestment" portion of "recovery and reinvestment" - given that so much money has so far gone to recovery, and not reinvestment, this is could be a good thing if the money is spent wisely.
