ARRA: Advancing Yale Research

On February 17, 2009, President Obama signed into law the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act  (ARRA), or the stimulus, to invigorate the economy and create jobs quickly by increasing investments in infrastructure, education, the environment, and scientific research. ARRA provided some $21 billion for scientific research and development, the purchase of scientific equipment, and science-related construction. This investment is an affirmation of the essential role scientific inquiry and discovery play in both short-term recovery and long-term economic growth.

Over $120 million in ARRA grants have been awarded to Yale to date, which will support innovative research on some of the most devastating illnesses facing the world today, including HIV/AIDS, autism, cancer, autoimmune disease and brain disorders.
