America’s research funding squeeze imperils patient care, say top medical school deans

27 mayo 2015

Constraints in federal funding, compounded by declining clinical revenue, jeopardize more than America’s research enterprise, experts say. These twin pressures have created a «hostile working environment» that erodes time to conduct research, «discourages innovative high-risk science» and threatens to drive established and early-career scientists out of the field. And this, they add, in turn undermines patient care.
