Where Should the Research Dollars Go?

THE INSTITUTE OF MEDICINE (National Academy of Sciences, Washington, DC) in a report entitled "Funding Health Sciences Research," is urging the National Institutes of Health (NIH) in nearby Bethesda, Md, to put more funds into training and into building new—or refurbishing old—facilities. But that is being challenged by those who oppose any shifting of funds from research grants.

The argument is that, without more support for training—the institute urges a 40% increase in these programs over the next 10 years—the long-term health of the biomedical research community is in jeopardy. Assuming that more funds are unlikely, the money to pay for this should come from the biomedical grants program—$182 million a year for the next 10 years, says the institute.

This has now come under sharp criticism from the Federation of American Societies of Experimental Biology, which represents seven biomedical scientific societies with a total membership of around 30 000.
