The National Institutes of Health has requested $30.362 billion for FY 2015, an increase of $210.8 million or 0.7 percent for FY 2015. Within this budget, funding for the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering (NIBIB) would increase 0.6%.
“In FY 2014, NIH will invest a total of $40 million to launch its part of the BRAIN Initiative, but this ambitious effort will need a substantial ramp up in FY 2015 to ensure the Initiative’s success. NIH is requesting a total of $100 million in FY 2015 to advance the high priority research areas of the BRAIN Initiative, as outlined in its interim strategic plan. As one of the leaders of the BRAIN Initiative at NIH, NIBIB is requesting an increase of $2.0 million in its budget to support these research priorities.”
Page 6 of this document describes proposed funding increases in three NIBIB areas – Research Project Grants, Training, Applied Science and Technology – as well as the requested decrease for Research and Development Contracts.
