Table 3 Genomics Funding by the National Institutes of Health, in US$ (thousands)

From: Genomics Research: World Survey of Public Funding

  FY 2003 FY 2004 FY 2005 FY 2006 FY 2007
National Cancer Institute (NCI)c $109,598 $117,302 $124,739 $107,413 $154,944
National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI)d $453,105 $475,735 $468,049 $463,550 $468,232
NCI+NHGRI $562,703 $593,037 $592,788 $570,963 $623,176
  1. The amount of genomics research funded by the National Cancer Institute (NCI) and the National Human Genome Research Institute (NHGRI), in thousands of US$, where FY = fiscal year.
  2. c NCI values for fiscal years 2006 and 2007 were 7.02% and 10.17% of genetics funding, respectively (Personal Communication, Weston Ricks, July 2008). We estimated the values for fiscal years 2003 – 2005 by multiplying the genetics funding values for each year by the average ratio of genomics:genetics funding for fiscal years 2006 – 2007.
  3. d We determined NHGRI values as the total NHGRI funding appropriation minus Roadmap Transfer and Research Management & Support [[29]; see text].
