Medical researchers at the University of Nevada will be researching budget cuts if the sequestration cuts in Washington go through as planned.
"Nevada has taken in $50-million over the past five years. This year we have $20-million from the National Institute of Health and if they cut 10%, that would be $2-million we'd have to cut from salaries, supplies and equipment," says Dr. James Kenyon, the Senior Associate Dean for Research at UNR's School of Medicine.
And he says that would impact direct research projects - and would be money not spent in the state. It would also, Kenyon says, impact other students on campus.
"We have undergraduates doing incredible science here....taking what they do in programs in math and science on the lower campus and coming up here and participating in world class research," Dr. Kenyon says.
Dr. Kenyon says he has been in touch with congressional delegates in Washington and plans to go there in person in two weeks to lobby to keep the NIH budget in tact as much as possible.
