UCSF Helps Faculty Seek Federal Stimulus Funds
Thursday, March 5, 2009
The UCSF School of Pharmacy faculty and its UCSF faculty colleagues are being aided by the campus in their requests for funds provided to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009. The act, which was signed into law by U.S. President Barack Obama on February 17, 2009, allocates US$10.4 billion to the NIH of the total US$787 billion in federal economic stimulus funding. Helping coordinate and expedite UCSF faculty requests for funding is a new committee appointed by UCSF Chancellor J. Michael Bishop, MD, and chaired by School of Medicine researcher Jeffrey Bluestone, PhD. Bluestone is joined on the committee by Mary Anne-Koda Kimble, PharmD, and faculty and administrative colleagues from across UCSF.
