Broken Pipeline (A must read for academic scientists)

  

 Hey Everybody,

I was reading this months ASBMB today and came across an article referring to a commentary called "A Broken Pipeline? Flat Funding of the NIH Puts a Generation at Risk." This is a very powerful article about the state of academic science and funding in the United States. 

This is a must read for all grad students, post docs, junior and senior faculty or anyone pursuing a career in academic science.

Here is the link

Something must be done to remedy this problem. Rusty has brought this issue up in a previous blog:

We must find a solution or we chance losing out on vital biomedical disease cures.
