The article focuses on the financial stress that the Nevada Cancer Institute is facing. It reports that the institute was pressed by the results of the fundraising, which have worsened as 2008 has gone on, and that its leadership moved August 7, 2008 to lay off 47 people. Heather Murren, chairwoman of the organization, indicates that the cuts were spread among departments to prevent a contraction of services. President John Laub of the Nevada Biotechnology and Bioscience Consortium states that they will move forward in bringing biotech to Las Vegas.
