Dr. Giselle Passos is PhD Postdoctoral Researcher at UC Irvine. The neuroscience lab she works with is facing budget cuts due to sequestration.
This week, we've been reporting on what across-the-board spending cuts — known as sequestration — mean for California.

KPCC's Sanden Totten says the cuts mean important discoveries will likely be delayed, and talented scientists may leave the state.
