If young talent continues to leave academia, Daniels says it could lead to
a gradual evaporation of new discoveries, the loss of future leaders and
mentors, a less diverse workforce and the loss of scientists at what should
be a pivotal point in their career.

*Daniels points to three reasons for the decline in research funding for
young scientists* — longer training periods, a grant system that may favor
incumbents and an increase in the cost of research that is borne by
universities, causing some institutions to shy away from unproven
researchers in favor of scientists with established funding streams.
