Web site details projects being funded with Recovery Act dollars


The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is now reporting on projects made possible by the $10.4 billion provided to NIH under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (ARRA). Its Web site contains a searchable list of reports on ARRA-funded projects in 166 different research areas. If you wanted to know what was happening in, say, Parkinson's disease, you'd be able to read about numerous studies, including one on a videogame-based training program to improve gait and balance in patients, and one on the use of fMRI to determine the effects of the disease on the brain circuits that control movement.

The site only describes work funded by about 2,000 NIH grants - there have been 12,000 rewarded so far - but it's a nice sampling.
