Transcript:
TIMOTHY JOHNSON: [Where] do the researchers of tomorrow come from today? Are we developing adequately, in this country, a research program that will be in place 20 years from now, as well as next year? We hear criticism, for example, that we have been, by decreasing funds and in other ways, slowly dismantling our research establishment to the point that in 20 years we may be facing some disasters. What kinds of plans are being made for the future?
DONALD S. FREDRICKSON: Well, we're holding at about steady in size. I don't think it's shrinking, but it's not growing very much. Research is costly; inflation is something we just manage to keep up with. Each year, the National Institutes of Health are the major trainers of a large number of people--young people--some of them looking for the PhD degree, some in the medical degree, and some not for doctorate degrees but for other roles to play. So the federal government is taking a very active role in helping in meeting costs of training, and we're keeping up. But it's not an easy thing, because research is getting more difficult. It's a full-time career, and you've got to be sure that when you embark upon it you will have adequate support and opportunity to make that your whole lifetime once you start.
