Yes, we have noticed a great deal of change. A number of organizations, private agencies and foundations, have indicated that they would not be able to continue to meet their research funding commitments. Others have asked for a pause, as they don't know what their fiscal position is.
For all of our hospital-based foundations and university-related fundraising, the returns on investment are obviously very threatened. This is often concluded by looking at investment revenue, which we know has been dramatically affected and much more so than in 2008, when we saw the last very significant shock to research funding.
In addition, we continue to work with the tri-councils and CFI, which is encouraging. However, again, in the population that is related to industrial-sponsored research, with the impact on industry's funding and industry's revenue streams, we are also seeing a pause.
In the very near future, within the next two weeks, if we don't find a better structure and strategy, there is capacity for approximately 10,000 to 15,000 layoffs in the research community nationally.
