Constraints in federal funding, compounded by declining clinical revenue, jeopardize more than the nation’s research enterprise.

And this, in turn, undermines patient care, proclaimed deans of leading academic medical centers from across the U.S. The group commentary was published in Science Translational Medicine on Wednesday.
