ARRA Summer Internships Introduce a New Generation to NIDCD-Funded Research
As part of the 2009 American Recovery and Reinvestment Act (ARRA), NIDCD received about $100 million to fund top-notch science in pursuit of improving the quality of American lives, while at the same time stimulating the economy.
One of our investments under the Recovery Act brought new energy to laboratories across the country, as NIDCD-funded researchers provided summer research experiences for students, science teachers, and faculty from non-research-intensive institutions. To learn how the interns—some of them scientists in the making—and their mentors both benefited from the experience, visit the NIDCD's Web site.
