In basic science, sometimes it takes individual benefactors like Roys Poyiadjis to fuel innovation

NEW YORK, May 31, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- A January blog posting by Dr. Thomas Insel, director of the National Institutes of Mental Health (NIMH), captured one of the core challenges of funding across the research spectrum.

Rather than investing scarce dollars for incremental improvements or increased dissemination of mediocre interventions, we need invest in the fundamental science of brain and behavior so that we can understand how to develop better treatments."

In the applied arena, large institutions like NYU are adroit at turning research grants from the federal government into patentable inventions. In the past several decades, more than 100 startups have been built on NYU discoveries and innovations.
