Will Obama’s freeze chill science? The Scientist [27th January 2010]

Not so good news if this pans out. Some reaction:

The Federation of American Societies for Experimental Biology (FASEB), another science advocacy organization, is holding out hope that Obama’s past statements on the importance of science and research in rebuilding the economy portend a reprieve for federal research funding agencies, such as the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation. “We’re hopeful that science is enough of a priority in the president’s agenda that the scientific agencies we care about will not be included [in the freeze],” FASEB spokesperson Carrie Wolinetz told The Scientist. “It’s something that we’re waiting to hear more details about.”
