Briefly: Yale gets nearly $800,000 in grants

Last Thursday, Yale University received $772,529 for research projects from the National Institutes of Health as part of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Of the funds, $680,100 is going toward testing the effectiveness of a diet and exercise program at reducing obesity and related illness in mentally ill patients. The remainder of the funding is going toward the upgrade of a high-throughput genetic analyzer so researchers can collect data in a more cost-effective manner. To date, the Department of Health and Human Services, through which the NIH funding is distributed, has disbursed over $13 billion of the almost $29 billion available to it through the Recovery and Reinvestment Act.


  • Huh?

    $29 billion and all Yale's gotten is $800k? WTF?

  • @huh

    not all of that money is available for research and/or education. and few projects have been peer reviewed with dollars out the door. as far as i know, this is the first round in a series that will last two years.
