NIH Response to Hurricane Katrina Disaster
Information for Investigators and Institutions

NIH is deeply saddened by the suffering of the people in the area affected by hurricane Katrina. We have taken a number of actions to address the immediate medical needs. Information about these and future NIH activities in this area will be posted on the NIH home page (http://www.nih.gov).

We are also deeply concerned about the health of the biomedical research enterprise in the affected area, and we are committed to working with researchers and institutions to do all that we can to ensure that NIH-funded research continues.

This website is intended to be a resource for all the biomedical research community. Look here for NIH Guide Notices and other information of particular relevance to investigators and their institutions; and look here also for related information, such as links to other Federal sites and links to professional societies that are facilitating interactions between affected investigators (including students, postdocs, etc.) and investigators offering assistance.

We encourage you to visit this site regularly.
