Nonfederal Funding of Biomedical Research and Development: A Survey of Doctoral Institutions. Higher Education Panel Reports, No. 25.
Atelsek, Frank J.; Gomberg, Irene L.
This survey is intended as an aid in assessing the magnitude and character of the nonfederal contribution to health research, in particular the present availability of alternative nonfederal funding sources at doctoral institutions (the prime locus of the nation's biomedical research effort), and to elicit from institutional representatives their judgments about the prospects for increased participation by state/local governments and the private sector in support of health related research. Usable data was returned by 73 percent of the institutions surveyed offering biomedical research and development activity. The data supplied was analysed in relation to selected institutional characteristics: (1) control of institution (public/private), (2) relative size of biomedical research enterprise (Top 20/Bottom 20), and (3) whether respondent institutions possessed a medical school or not. Respondents also rated their institutions' effectiveness in finding new nonfederal funds for biomedical research and their projected nonfederal funds for the next five years. Finally, the respondents commented on anticipated changes in nonfederal funding, including the nature, magnitude, and implications of these changes. (Author/JMF)
