USF, Moffitt Researchers Feel Bite of Automatic Cuts
University of South Florida and Moffitt Cancer Center say sequestration budget cuts are hurting their work, since most of their grants come from the National Institutes of Health, the Tampa Tribune reports. Moffitt, which expects to lose more than half its budget for cancer research, says it expects delays and layoffs.
TAMPA - Some Americans think sequestration is old news, but medical researchers say those cuts coming from Washington are hurting the future of scientific advancements in Tampa and across the country. The government's belt-tightening is expected to affect each of the 200-plus National Institutes of Health research grants at the University of South Florida and Moffitt Cancer Center.
