Who s Getting Grants?

Premium

Early this fall, Genome Technology surveyed scientists to find out about their funding patterns and other grant-related information.

More than half of respondents said their labs had fewer than four grants, while two percent said their labs had more than 20 grants. Nearly two-thirds of respondents told us that their research had shifted in the last five years based on changes in funding priorities.
