The medical sciences have been consuming a larger and larger share of the academic R&D funding pie over the past two decades, according to a new analysis by the National Science Foundation. In contrast, chemistry's share has decreased over the same period. When it comes to budgets, Congress isn't equally generous each year with the federal agencies that support R&D. The Department of Defense's budget has just been holding its own since the end of the Cold War, for example, while the National Ins...

As another immense ozone hole develops over Antarctica, U.S. atmospheric scientists this week will launch a mission to the Arctic to determine if, by the end of the century, such massive ozone depletion also will appear near major population centers in the Northern Hemisphere. The National Aeronautics & Space Administration's Airborne Arctic Stratospheric Expedition II (AASEII), costing about $8 million, will fly two instrument-laden aircraft over the Arctic from Fairbanks, Alaska, and Bangor, M...

Scientists have returned from the first comprehensive probe of the Arctic stratosphere with unexpectedly dire results: The winter atmosphere in the north polar region is loaded with the same destructive chlorine compounds that cause the Antarctic ozone hole. Atmospheric researchers who only a few weeks ago were comforted by the thought that the warmer Northern Hemisphere is strongly protected from the processes that lead to massive losses of ozone during spring in Antarctica now see very little ...

The U.S. Department of Agriculture spent more than 1 billion on research in fiscal 1990, but only about 4%—the 0-odd million from the Competitive Research Grants Office (CRGO)—was distributed through a competitive peer-review process open to all scientists. The bulk of USDA's research funds is directed to land-grant universities and to its own extensive research facilities or is earmarked as "special grants" that support the pet projects of this Senator or that Representative. However, that m...

The ozone layer worldwide shrank an average of about 2.5% during the past decade, even after allowing for natural variability, according to a study released last week by the National Aeronautics & Space Administration. The report—shocking in its implications—compiles the first compelling evidence for ozone depletion outside Antarctica, where ozone levels have been plummeting each spring since the mid-1970s. It pins responsibility for the changes squarely on man-made chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs). T...

BIOCHEMIST AKIKO TSUGAWA has heard women chemists in the U.S. complaining about the "glass ceiling" impeding their careers. In Japan, she said, women "don't face a glass ceiling but a 'concrete ceiling.' We can't even see what possibilities might be available." Now a professor at Tokyo Medical & Dental University, Tsugawa was one of five Japanese women who took part in the symposium "Women Chemists: Past, Present & Future" at the 2005 International Chemical Congress of Pacific Basin Societies (P...

THE PANELISTS TAKING PART IN the presidential event on academic hiring at last month's American Chemical Society national meeting in San Diego did not shy away from the tough questions. While providing practical insights into the hiring process, from drafting a compelling cover letter to schmoozing with the provost, the diverse group tackled such challenging issues as whether to identify yourself as a member of a minority group and when to bring up the complication that your spouse needs a job, ...
