Why is NIAID the only institute that offers the supplement to support postdoctoral fellows to hire a tech to help them with their work while they need to be away from the lab (for e.g. maternity leave, etc.)?
NIAID started this in 2004. I know from insider information that the NIH working group to address bias and barriers to women in science talked about this sometime between 2006 and 2008. It's now 2011, and NIAID is still the only institute that makes it available. Let's go, NIGMS, NCI, NHLBI, all the rest of you.
