    NICHD were exceedingly generous.
    Can we write to thank them?

    Website also lists the 7 administrative supplemental grants issued to: Nacul in London(1), Katz in Chicago(1),
    Campagne at Cornell(1), Mark Davis at Stanford(1), Lipkin at Columbia(1), and Klimas researchers at NOVA(2).

    Click on "Funded Projects" at:

    https://www.nih.gov/mecfs/funding

    It's helpful to have descriptions of current studies, investigators, and locations in one place.

    Looks like they count a grant of over X years X times versus once.

    The graph on page 5 makes it difficult to see which years had the most least funding over all. Kind of a crappy graph.

    It seems like this year might be the most funding in a year total, but it's the smallest number of grants since 2010. Doesn't really reflect research funding at NIH ramping up !

    Looks like 2016 funding went down $1.5 million. Unreal.

    The title page dates the document as May 2016 while the table of 2016 numbers says "Funding To-Date" so you can't say $4.5 million is the total for 2016.
