2012 $146.5 $504.0 $163.9 $653.0
2013 $146.1 $431.0 $153.7 $612.8
Note: The methodology that some ICs used to collect nonhuman embryonic funding figures changed between FY 2003 and FY 2004, which accounts for a portion of the drop in funding between FY 2003 and FY 2004 in the nonhuman embryonic stem cell shown here. Starting in FY 2008, the NIH adopted a new coding/reporting strategy, therefore the four categories do not add to the total of stem cell research for FY 2008-onward.

You can access detailed project listings for FY 2008-onward for each of the Stem Cell Research categories listed above on NIH's RePORT (Research Portfolio Online Reporting Tools) Web site at http://www.report.nih.gov/rcdc/categories/.
