February proved to be a popular month for RNA interference-related grants, with the National Institutes of Health providing four US researchers with more than $850,000 to fund their work through 2005.

The first grant was awarded to Rockefeller University researcher Matthew Poy by the National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney Diseases for his research into the role of microRNAs in pancreatic islet function.

Poy’s grant runs between Feb. 1, 2005, and Jan. 31, 2008. The NIDDK has earmarked $48,296 for his research in 2005.
