ABSTRACT
The article comments on the decreasing number of research grants funded by the government because of budget constraints in the United States. Researchers have been discouraged at the high number of grant applicants getting rejected. The applicants are concerned that the vagaries in the National Institutes of Health review process introduce an element of luck into who gets funded.
