The governmental (NIOSH) budget provides less funding to occupational health and safety each year, while at the same time funds for biomedical research and education are increased.
Conversely, corporate funding of university research has expanded dramatically over the past decades. This funding has grown to more than $2 billion, making US universities more dependent on private commercial funding than ever before.
