Check out this awesome interactive state-by-state map of NIH funding and its impact from United for Medical Research. When you click on each state you will get the amount of NIH funding and the number of jobs this funding supports. It also includes a list of the top NIH funded institutions and the leading causes of death by disease! The announcing press release states that the interactive map will be a resource for the public, lawmakers, and media… but I’m a scientist and I think it is super useful!

United For Medical Research, a coalition of leading research institutions, patient and health advocates, and private industry, today launched a user-friendly map spotlighting the state-level impact of federal research funds provided by the National Institutes of Health (NIH). NIH awards support more than 400,000 jobs nationwide, funding the nation’s leading research institutions and spurring investments and research by the biopharmaceutical industry.
