As of midnight Tuesday, October 1, due to the inability of Congress to agree on a bill to fund the government, the federal government is officially shut down. As a result, the majority of federal services and programs have been halted. This is going to have a serious effect on the NIH and the medical research community.
Until a decision has been made in regards to funding, the federal government will remain closed until further notice.
