Jean-Eudes Dazard, Suzanne Rivera sound off on impact of federal research cuts

Ohio colleges brace for federal research cuts

The Columbus Dispatch: Researchers around the state are preparing to cut back their projects as the sequester forces federal funding to be cut. “I had hoped to hire a graduate student and a research associate for part of the work,” said Jean-Eudes Dazard of his National Institutes of Health-funded work to genetically tailor treatments to cancer patients. “Now I will be only able to support myself.” Suzanne Rivera, associate vice president for research, said the university is “concerned about interrupting the momentum of science.”
