If NIH isn't going to fund people, someone has to take up the slack, why not HHMI? They announced a new competition, beginning this week, for research support totaling $300 million for young scientists. They plan to chose up to 70 scientists who have been running their own labs for two to six years. "This is a critical time for these scientists because many have not yet been able to obtain the kind of stable funding that would permit them to move their own research in creative new directions," says Jack Dixon, HHMI vice president and chief scientific officer.
