1) Since you are a biologist (I am also and will finish my dissertation and defend in the next couple of months-yeah)

Congrats! It's all downhill from there.

Just kidding.

3) Is her income referred to as a 'stipend'. I think that stipends may carry slightly different rules for some issues.

Yes it is a stipend.

4) Is your wife a) an independent postdoc researcher and received the grant herself or b) working for a P.I. who received the grant and pays her from it? Note: this question probably doesn't matter if the answer to #2 is 'No'.

Neither, but closer to B; it's an IRTA fellowship (intramural research training award) and I believe that each PI at NIH gets 2 IRTAs out of the base NIH budget.
