I’ve been stewing about the NIH funding situation, and Drug Monkey is fueling my ire. A colleague sent me a news article from Nature expounding on potential changes to NIH grant… I’m sorry but you have to have access to a library with a subscription to read the whole thing. One of the most unexpected parts of this article for me were the ## of investigators with many many NIH grants. There are, according to this article, 783 investigators with 4 or more NIH grants, and 195 of these actually have 5 or more NIH grants.
Wow. I had no idea. That seems crazy. I know that there are at least 195 people who won’t like me saying that… oh well.
