This Analysis in Brief explores how academic institutions support investigators who experience an interruption in sponsored research funding. Specifically, many institutions provide a mechanism—bridge funding—to support high quality research projects during lapses in Federal support. 

Results suggest that medical schools consider bridge support an important strategy to help sustain research programs, and in 80 percent of participating institutions, bridge award amounts were limited to $100,000 or less.  Given the extraordinarily difficult fiscal environment for medical research, bridge funding programs may be critical for the survival of promising research projects.
