NIH news

From Medical Writing, Editing & Grantsmanship:

According to the AAMC, seems most likely these CRs will be the high-point of FY11:

During debate on the measure, Rep. Jerry Lewis (Calif.), the ranking Republican on the House Appropriations Committee, again expressed opposition to “any potential omnibus spending bill the Democratic leadership may be planning to bring to the House floor before the end of the year.” He also opposed extending the CR for the balance of FY 2011 at current level, which he described as “frankly, too darn high.”

I won't argue the merits or deficits of this view at the policy level except to say that, from a personal point of view, this news doesn't help my plans to start a career in this area.
