NIH Scientists

With the passage of H.R. 2055 last December, NIH effectively lowered the salary cap for principal investigators and officials by $20,000. Executive Level 2, which totals $179,700.00, is now in place of Executive Level I, which was $199,700.00.

Will there be a migration of NIH scientists to the bio industry?
