Worried about the effects of a government shutdown on NIH funding?
The upcoming October 1st start to the new fiscal year has many people in the grants world more than a little nervous. At this point, we just don't know how a government shutdown will impact federal grants. We already know that NIH funding has been significantly reduced in recent years. Beyond that, it is difficult to predict what will happen. Keep an eye on the NIH Sequestration Page for the latest information on policies and procedures in response to the budget shutdown, if it should happen. Let's hope that all of our Democrat and Republican legislators can come together and continue to support the advancement of science research!
