Hello Everybody,

I was wondering what type of institutional support y'all have at your various institutions.  I work for a research foundation and they want to drop my salary and have the researchers grants pay my salary and almost everything else.  I am a fee-for-service lab and the CEO wants to see $25K in recharges between now and December.

We offer TEM, confocal, histology and cryosectioning.  We will be adding micro-CT and a deconvolution microscope that does FRET and can handle samples that have been transfected(?) with viral vectors.

Is she being unrealistic?  I am only 80% time and the only person down here.  Should I start looking for a new position before she shuts me down?  How many people have had their facilities closed by the people who don't see the big picture?

Please let me know your experiences.
