February 2009
Clinical Trials Administrator;Feb2009, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p16
The article looks at the impact of the flat funding received by the National Institutes of Health on the science and research community in the U.S. First-time recipients of the agency's premier research grant are older now than they were two decades ago. The success rate for one of the premier research grants is only 12% today upon a first submission. Research institutions downsize their labs and lay-off post-doctoral fellows when grants are rejected.
