NIH Director Francis Collins: Sequester taking its toll on science NIH Director Francis Collins: Budget fight a tragedy for life sciences Capitol Connection October 1, 2013 It's safe to say it's been a pretty rough year for science agencies like the National Institutes of Health (NIH). Yale lab forced to reduce size by attrition Capitol Connection September 30, 2013 Sequestration has decreased the pool of grant money available from federal institutions like the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, which in turn increases the number of researchers competing for other funding sources. Yale professor Lawrence Rizzolo, Ph.D., discusses this and other downstream impacts of sequestration in an interview with AAAS MemberCentral.
