Research morale low among young researchers

February 2009
Clinical Trials Administrator;Feb2009, Vol. 7 Issue 2, p17
The article reveals the low research morale displayed by young researchers in the U.S. Such problem is linked to the flat funding received by the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH) and increasing competition for fewer grants. In addition, scientific research is becoming more expensive when it comes to maintaining buildings, performing cutting-edge platform technologies and making discoveries. One major effect of this is that some of the best and brightest have decided not to enter biomedical research.
