NIH helps grantees affected by Hurricane Sandy

The National Institutes of Health will offer limited competition awards to the researchers hardest hit by Hurricane Sandy when it struck New York and New Jersey in October 2012.

NIH says many of its grantees are still experiencing the effects of that devastating weather event, and the awards will help those who suffered significant disruption to research programmes to restore their damaged research and facilities.

“In light of the severe damages to a number of NIH-supported research programmes in the area, we have worked diligently over the past months to put together a plan to assist in the restoration of these programmes,” said NIH’s deputy director for extramural research, Sally Rockey, in a blog post on 15 April.
