Framingham Funding

Taking the 'fun' out of Funding?
 
One of the most famous and certainly longest-running trials of CVD has seen its funding slashed by 40%, and while the Framingham Heart Study (FHS) is still open and ongoing, there will be layoffs later this year and clinical examinations and laboratory activities will be eliminated. The reason for the cutbacks is the automatic funding cuts that went into place as a result of the US government sequestration. In a typical year, the FHS receives approximately $9 million per year from the government through its contract with the National Heart, Lung, and Blood Institute (NHLBI).
