According to research conducted by Science Insider, the number of investigators fell by up to 1,000 last year, due in large part to dwindling federal funding. That suggests that after years of propping up grant numbers by squeezing the size of existing grants, the National Institutes of Health could not avoid a drastic cut in the number of investigators they funded last year.
These labs aren’t all necessarily shutting down. They could have bridge funding from their institution or be surviving by other means, such as foundation support. That’s why your financial support for Dr. Lampidis’ groundbreaking cancer research is all the more vital, particularly as we stand on the threshold of bringing this universal treatment through Phase 2 clinical trials. Help us continue in the fight against this devastating global disease.
