St. Louis University eliminates medical research program, 21 jobs - Samantha Liss St. Louis Post-Dispatch

St. Louis University School of Medicine has cut 21 jobs, mostly laboratory positions associated with the closing of a research department that focuses on developing treatments for rare diseases. The elimination of positions is part of a larger cost-saving initiative at the university that started earlier this year, but was delayed within the School of Medicine to give the new dean, Dr. Kevin Behrns, vice president for medical affairs, a chance to review the operations. The cost-saving measures are to address the university’s $16 million budget deficit. The decision was made to close the Center for World Health and Medicine, founded in 2010, on June 30.
