Scientists: U.S. no longer the global leader in research

Scientific researchAn overwhelming majority of U.S. scientists in all fields say the country is no longer the global leader in scientific research, a non-profit group says.

The American Society for Biochemistry and Molecular Biology's report on government-funded scientific research, titled "Unlimited Potential, Vanishing Opportunity," detailed the findings of a survey of more than 3,700 frontline scientists from all 50 states, Puerto Rico and the District of Columbia.

The survey, conducted in June and July by 16 scientific societies representing a variety of scientific disciplines, asked questions regarding cuts to non-defense discretionary spending by Congress since 2010.

Benjamin Corb, public affairs director for ASBMB, said these cuts in research funding reached a historic low in March with sequestration.
