Inequalities in the Distribution of National Institutes of Health Research Project Grant Funding
We present the data in descending order of funding. The PI with the most funding appears at the top, and the PI with the least funding on the bottom. The columns in the table are: PI name (“A” through “J”) Funding: the amount of funding in support of each PI Cumulative Funding: the total amount of funding supporting that PI and all other PIs receiving higher levels of funding (higher up in the Table) Cumulative Proportion of Funding: the proportion of total funding (in percent) supporting that PI and all other PIs receiving higher levels of funding. Table 1 shows one measure of inequality, namely the proportion o...

HEAL Initiative: Coordinating Center for National Pain Scientists Career Development (R24 Clinical Trial Not Allowed)
Funding Opportunity RFA-NS-22-046 from the NIH Guide for Grants and Contracts. There is an urgent need for more research to establish best practices in the pain management field, however, there is a limited workforce pipeline of pain researchers to meet NIHs long-term goals of providing effective non-opioid options for the treatment of pain conditions and better pain management overall. The Interagency Pain Research Coordinating Committee (IPRCC) has identified the workforce problem as a barrier for new pain research, and has identified factors that contributed to it such as barriers to entry into the field of pain rese...

Farewell 2021, Time to Bring in 2022
It has been quite a year. Francis Collins, NIH Director for over 12 years, stepped down after an extraordinary tenure, a tenure marked by “a calm hand, a scientific mind, and a deep commitment to the well-being of all Americans.” The stresses and ongoing uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic continued in almost roller-coaster like fashion; at this writing, we are in the midst of the Omicron surge. As some COVID-19 grant-related flexibilities remain in place, anxieties persist about intermediate- and long-term effects of the pandemic on research productivity, mental health, financial well-being, and family responsibiliti...
