NIH Gets Another Record Budget

Though the agency had to wait nearly 3 months for it, and through a string of continuing resolutions that went into the teens, NIH emerged Dec. 29 with another record-setting budget for fiscal year 2001, totalling $20.3 billion, or about $1.5 billion more than the President had requested. The increase of nearly 14 percent over last year's mark of $17.8 billion keeps NIH on a pace legislators have set to double the agency's budget in the period 1998-2003.
