American science losing ground

Thursday, December 22, 2011

"You win some, you lose some. That appears to be the current state of affairs with federal funding for research. Congress recently passed legislation providing a modest increase in funding to the National Institutes of Health, which funds research at the Johns Hopkins University and other universities, academic medical centers, small businesses, and independent research institutions across the U.S. That's the good news. The bad news is that this increase doesn't make up for the $300 million-plus cut the NIH received in the last budget go-round; much less does it keep pace with the increasing cost of conducting medical research." — "American science losing ground," Carol Greider, PhD (Baltimore Sun, December 22, 2011)
