In anticipation of the Trump presidency, GENETIC ENGINEERING & BIOTECHNOLOGY NEWS (GEN) surveyed 2,300 members of the global biotech community from industry and academia.

Of the 2,300 respondents, 47.70%, believe that the president-elect may not support NIH research funding. 19.74% said it would not make a difference, and 25.52% said Trump’s presidency would prove positive.

During the campaign, president-elect Trump hinted at possible support for higher NIH budgets, even as he has called for cutting federal spending: “We must make the commitment to invest in science, engineering, healthcare, and other areas that will make the lives of Americans better, safer, and more prosperous,” he has said.
