Where the stimulus's NIH money went
Yesterday, I put health-research funding into the basket of stimulus policies that wouldn't do much in the short term but could do a lot in the long term. Today, a reader e-mailed to say I'm wrong and that this money pays out more quickly and directly than I'd anticipated. She passed along this report (pdf) from a medical research group that tries to explain more clearly where the money is going. The stimulus was so big that a lot of the projects it funded are totally unknown. But when you drill down into them, they're the sort of things that most of us will eventually be glad were done. Building up our medical research infrastructure is very much one of those.
