A new report released today stresses that continual flat funding at the NIH is hurting young researchers the most, says this article at Environmental News Network. The 20-page report, titled "A Broken Pipeline? Flat Funding of the NIH Puts a Generation of Science at Risk," profiles 12 junior researchers who are struggling to secure funding for biomedical research. "... it appears that junior investigators may be having the toughest time in this fiscal climate. They're competing for funding with established researchers, who are their mentors, and finding that the financial support just isn't there, or that they can't afford to support themselves while writing and rewriting grant proposals," said Robert Golden, dean of the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health.
