While British chemists are worried about science budget cuts in the UK, medical researchers are getting a £800 million infusion of funding, reports The Guardian. The money, which will be spent over five years, will support research conducted by the National Health Service and its partners. One large award of £112 million is going to Imperial College and the Imperial NHS for bioengineering, cancer, and genetics studies. Health secretary Andrew Lansley says the funding is to support translational research that is "developing exciting new science into tangible, effective treatments that can be used across the NHS."
