Shrinking budgets have caused scientists to scramble harder than ever to secure funding for their research. The National Institutes of Health, the main source of funding for biomedical research in the United States, has lost 22 percent of its purchasing power since 2003. As a result, it has gone from funding one in three research proposals to funding only one in six. Despite the challenging funding climate, UNC’s research enterprise has doubled in the last decade, reaching nearly $800 million in 2014. Now, UNC is sharing the secrets of its success with other institutions to help bring more research dollars to North Carolina.
