American science can benefit from Texas leadership

Friday, December 16, 2011

"Today, a biomedical scientist in the United States has less than a one in six chance of getting an NIH grant funded. As a result, many promising scientists are leaving university laboratories for other pursuits. The NIH's flat line budget has had a particularly chilling effect on young scientists as universities and medical centers use precious resources to support existing faculty in lieu of making new recruitments. Are we eating our young?" — "American science can benefit from Texas leadership," by William Brinkley, PhD, and Peter Hotez, MD, PhD (Houston Chronicle, December 16, 2011)
