The Michigan Indymedia center has posted a version of my article about the Institute for Collaborative Biotechnologies..

The leaders of local public Universities appealed to the state legislature for more funds. The latest from President Coleman:
“[Coleman] said that U-M’s enrollment has increased 4,500 students since 1985, about 13 percent, to its current total of nearly 39,000 students. Yet U-M plans to cut 50 faculty positions by attrition, Coleman said, and more than 250 staff positions will be cut, some by attrition and others by layoffs.”

And the possibility of another dry summer may result in low water levels on the Huron River.
