Major decline - the funding rate for NIH grants is close to an all time low - around 10% (after a couple of cycles of no funding, you have to throw in the towel since you need a lot of preliminary data to get into that 10%)
and this is BEFORE the budget cuts that are now on the way
I tell all the smart MIT and Harvard students who show an interest in research and ask me about it to not do it and go to medical school instead

For medical research is an illusion that most americans have. You have no idea how difficult it is to get funding. the current level of funding for grants at the NIH is about 15%. That means 85% don't get ANY funding.
For years now I've been telling every smart kid from MIT or Harvard that came by our lab who wants to do a Ph D to NOT go into medical research. The conditions in research are far too difficult to recommend that anyone do it.
For example the entire budget for ALL medical and basic scientific research funded by the US govt was about 30 billion dollars in 2007 while the military budget was over 20 TIMES higher, over 600 billion
