NIH revolt

ScienceInsider has the latest news on the growing insurgency among biomedical researchers reacting to the news that NIH plans to break up National Center for Research Resources (NCRR).

NCRR has played a very important historical role in the history of the National Institutes of Health. We’ll have to see how this plays out.
