President Signs '02 Budget for NIH

NIH will get nearly $3 billion more in fiscal year 2002 than it did in 2001, thanks to an appropriation bill signed by President Bush on Jan. 11. House and Senate conferees approved a $23.285 billion budget for '02 (14.7 percent above '01), but the final program level settled at $22.888 billion (14.4 percent increase) after $100 million was taken out for a global AIDS/malaria/tuberculosis fund, and other taps. The increase marks the fourth payment on an effort, begun in 1998, to double the NIH budget within 5 years.
