This Bornean horseshoe bat and other bat species can harbor coronaviruses. The nonprofit group EcoHealth Alliance had its NIH research money cut for a project in China on bats and coronaviruses this spring — but just got a new multimillion dollar grant from the agency.

EcoHealth Alliance is one of 11 recipients of funds to set up the Centers for Research in Emerging Infectious Diseases. But the grant won’t let them revisit earlier research on bats and coronavirus.
