NIBIB is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), for which the Administration requested a $1 billion increase to $32.3 billion. NIBIB's mission is to improve human health by leading the development and accelerating the application of biomedical technologies. By focusing on improving health care through technology, NIBIB invests resources in both scientific and technological opportunities and in support of the next generation of researchers. Current NIBIB funding is $316.5 million, and would increase to $325.9 million. Details on NIBIB's request are available at www.nibib1.nih.gov/nibib/file/AboutNIBIB/BudgetandLegislation/FY2011/Final_FY11_CJ_NIBIB.pdf. A section in the budget document states "NIBIB funding policies give special consideration to grant applications that bridge and integrate the life and physical sciences, and also focus on enhancing support for new investigators."
