The US National Institutes of Health (NIH) intends to provide nearly $18m in funding so that 11 research institutions around the country can buy "big ticket" medical equipment needed in biomedical research. The one-time High-End Instrumentation grants will go to pay for such items as structural and functional imaging systems and macromolecular nuclear magnetic resonance spectrometers. These products typically cost anywhere from $750,000 to $2m.
