Purdue researchers are having to find ways to compensate for more competitive grants to continue at the same performance level.
About five years ago, federal grants and private agencies would grant one out of every five proposals. Now, the number has decreased to one of every 10 proposals or less. According to Richard Kuhn, director of the Bindley Bioscience Center, although federal funding pays for employee salaries, this is not a problem yet.
"Federal dollars are very tight," Kuhn said. "Most of our salaries come from federal grants. We have enough internal grants, however, that it doesn't affect us today."
At the Birck Nanotechnology Center, interim director James Cooper, said the faculty have had to write more proposals to get the same amount of funds as before. Cooper also said the Nanotechnology Center is at an advantage as nanotechnology is a popular topic in today's scientific world.
"We haven't seen a downturn in federal funds," Cooper said. "Our faculty have been constantly writing proposals for grants."
