Other notes: Reported expenditures on health research can differ from what funders themselves report, because we excluded operational costs for managing the funding organization where possible, and because we excluded funding for research education. Because this mapping excludes operational costs for managing the funding organization, NIH budget lines for Research Management and Support, the Office of the Director, and Buildings and Facilities were also not included. Because this mapping excludes funding for research education, NIH expenditures on research training and cancer education were not included.
