On Tuesday, February 14, 2012, Academy staff attended an NIH FY 2013 Budget Priorities Briefing presented by NIH Director, Dr. Francis Collins, titled “Improving Health Across the Human Lifespan” at the NIH campus in Bethesda, MD. The Academy learned details about NIH research priorities and NIH funding opportunities. While NIH funding is at the same total program level as FY 2012, there are expected to be more opportunities for research project grants because of a new focus on keeping the average length of grants of shorter duration to bring in new and competing projects.
Brief presentations were made by the following researchers:
- Infancy presented by Dr. Alan Guttmacher
- Childhood presented by Dr. Griffin Rodgers
- Early Adulthood presented by Dr. Anthony Fauci
- Older Adulthood presented by Dr. Neil Buckholtz
