see: PECASE and others make their case for more public research funding:
Dr. Katherine Rauen, a professor in the Department of Pediatrics at the University of California, Davis, said that individuals struggling to obtain funding at her institution were leaving for the private sector. The dollars and stability there have always been more alluring, but the trend has become more pronounced, she said.

"We want them to stay in academic medicine," said Rauen. "We want them to stay in clinical, translational research to provide the best practices for patients in the future."
