NIH Funding

I have been tracking and analyzing the details of NIH funding of ME/CFS research since 2012. I’ve also examined who reviews ME/CFS grant applications for NIH, and other issues that impact funding opportunities and decisions. I’ve compiled all these analyses here, listed in chronological order. This list only includes analyses of data and information obtained from NIH. Advocacy and commentary posts can be found under the tag NIH.
