It’s a new year (in Washington DC, anyway). I didn’t have to turn the RFA Ticker back to zero, since that is where it was all of FY 2016. But here we are, so let’s get started on FY 2017.
NIH issued three times more funding in RFAs in the first week of FY 2017 than all the funding that ME/CFS research received in FY 2016.
Here are the cumulative numbers:
|FY 2017||FY 2016|
|RFAs for ME/CFS||ZERO||ZERO|
And here is the table for FY 2017 alone.
|Week Beginning||RFAs Issued||Total Commitment||RFAs for ME/CFS|
