What Did the NOHR Grant Do for Scientists´┐Ż Careers?

Grantees were asked how the new knowledge resulting from their NOHR award impacted their ability to obtain additional grant funding. Very importantly, all the respondents said it was used as evidence of scientific productivity.

They used the results from their NOHR funded research to gain longer term research support from various federal agencies (e.g. The National Institutes of Health, the National Science Foundation, etc.)

It was also possible to estimate the extent to which the NOHR awards were leveraged into longer term research support.

The responses from 73 grantees indicated that for every 1.00 of NOHR support awarded, they were able to leverage that into 103 of longer term support. This is a remarkable number.

It means that the average NOHR award for these grantees was expanded into longer multi-year support, valued at $1.2 million!

The relatively small amount of research funds provided by the NOHR Foundation had a significant impact on the expansion of our grantees´┐Ż research, the development of their scientific and academic careers, and on the training of the next generation of scientists. 

The new knowledge that emerged from this research has had a significant impact on our understanding of hearing.
