Stimulus grants $25 million to GU scientists and physicians

Say what you will about the stimulus package’s limited effect on the unemployment rate, the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA) is creating and sustaining jobs on campus at Georgetown University, University News reports.

Since the University began receiving stimulus money, almost 50 professors, scientists, and physicians have received more than $25 million in ARRA funding from the Department of Education, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institute of Health.

According to assistant provost for research Timothy Barbari, the funding is not only allowing current research efforts to continue but is also “creating new positions, primarily for post-doctoral fellows and research scientists.”

A full list of NIH and National Science Foundation grants can be found on their websites.
