9:24 pm
or device in people. according to nih spokesperson john burklow, 'our current studies will continue and the patients will be cared for. were just not enrolling new patients and we are not initiating new studies.' nih studies around the country are also ongoing, but federal grant aplications - due this week on october 5 -- will be back logged. with the shutdown, there are no staff members in place to review all those applications. and that means progress on potentially life saving drugs will be halted. here in chicago, at research hospitals like rush university medical center and university of chicago, its business as usual. their government-funded clinical trials will continue, as will those at other sites around the country; however, researchers will experience a delay if they need to draw additional funds from their federal grants. and that could ultimately impact the research. as a result of the shutdown, the u.s. centers for disease
