When U.S. Funding For Neglected Disease Research Increases, Other Countries’ Funding Falls, Research Shows

Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business: When the U.S. Spends More on Fighting a Disease, the Rest of the World Spends Less

It is the first time the effects of changes in U.S. research funding on other countries has been measured” (12/14).
