FASEB Illustrates NIH Funding Losses After Sequestration
Date: March 26, 2013
NIH and related agencies will cut nearly a quarter of their support to biomedical and biological research as sequestration takes effect. The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB) has created a two page factsheet
that illustrates funding loss estimates state-by-state, and features quotes from leaders in the field warning of the implications of these losses. “I worry desperately this means we will lose a generation of young scientists,” said NIH Director Francis Collins. Visit the FASEB homepage
