Bibliographical noteFunding Information:
Disappointment from rejection looms in many locations within our workplace, but has 4 definable tiers for scientists. At the elementary level is the receipt of funds needed to do experiments. Funding is clearly limited these days, and good ideas and experiments may not be performed, because the proportion of grants being funded by the National Institutes of Health is down compared with a decade ago (competing Research Project Grant applications in 1998 were successfully funded at a rate of 32%; by 2007 the funding rate had declined to 21%). 2 However, our government invests about 2.7% of the gross domestic income on science, 3 a commitment made originally during the Civil War, so in theory the most meritorious efforts are still being supported.
