Interesting comment about NIGMS recent solicitation of supplement applications for capital equipment infrastructure.
Asked if this meant that GM has extra money, which they would also spend on R mechs. “Yes”, but because success rate is already 30%, can’t go much higher without Congress thinking they have too much money. So they prefer to funnel available funds into infrastructure development. https://t.co/a9l6G3DXRg

If true this says some interesting things about whether NIH will ever do anything to reduce churn, increase paylines and generally make things more livable for their extramural workforce.
