With the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009, the Congress provided $8.2 billion to the National Institutes of Health, the federal agency that funds much of the nation's medical research, for grants to scientists at Stanford University School of Medicine and its peer institutions across the country. The NIH projects that the stimulus money will create and save some 50,000 jobs, nationwide, including some 5,000 for summer jobs for high school and college students and educators. Read more about the stimulus.

The School of Medicine is using its awards from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act to search for cures for cancer, develop stem cell therapies and gain new insights into the causes of heart disease. To date, the School of Medicine has received 134 stimulus grants totaling about $86 million. We encourage you to review these pages to see examples of how stimulus dollars are advancing human knowledge, helping the economy, and improving human health.
