A spokesman for the medical center said Wednesday that jobs would be lost. However, they can't say exactly how many jobs would be at stake.
Support staff positions are at risk. That includes lab technicians and graduate student positions.
These are employees assisting in cancer, aging, diabetes and Alzheimer's research.
The university says they won't shut down any current trials. But, job cuts do mean slowing scientific research.
"This will only delay and maybe significantly delay abandon of promising research that won't get done,"
said Alzheimer's reseacher, Dr. Anton Porsteinsson.
